Report 92.3.TT.3053, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
Within some years new standards for elevators will developed by the European

It is important that these problems are taken into account by the Dutch
Instition of Elevator Technology and the Dutch government. Both will be heavily

The overview of todays elevator technology in this paper consists of three
