The Gen360™ platform: The elevator completely reimagined
The Gen360 elevator is built around an all new electronic architecture that sets new standards for proactive digital elevator safety. Its state-of-the-art technologies provide enhanced design, safety, service, experience and support.
Many mechanical safety components have been replaced by “drive by wire” electronic technology, allowing 24/7 remote monitoring, increasing overall reliability and freeing hoistway space to accommodate larger cabins. The new electronic architecture also significantly reduces the potential for entrapments.1
The Gen3™ elevator: A platform for possibility
The Gen3 elevator combines the proven design of the industry-leading Gen2 elevator with the connectivity of the Otis ONE IoT digital platform, which monitors equipment health and performance in real time, 24/7.
The Gen3 elevator is available with the Otis eView™ in-car display that streams infotainment for passengers and connects them with the OTISLINE® customer support center via video chat in the event of an emergency.

Creating a more connected world
As a company rooted in technology and innovation, we’re creating a more connected world that would have been unimaginable only a few years ago: a world defined by spaces with purpose, for connecting and thriving; where the smart, connected elevator is important to how we move. These are the connections our customers, our passengers and our own colleagues want. And we’re delivering by rewriting the rules and inventing new ways to keep the world moving.
