This proposed system is elaborated for designing an elevator of normal working and includes features that automatically work on some emergency situations like fire identification in the building (FID), earthquake (EQK), and also water flow detection in the building accurately with a platform-free development environment. On the basis of encoder pulse provided from the JGA25–370, a DC geared motor with quadrature encoder’s step signals provided in two different channels, the direction and the floor leveling can be identified. It includes STM8S103F3, an ARM minimum system development board, as the stand-alone microcontroller for this project as the direction of the elevator body (CAR) can be controlled by in-CAR operating panel (COP) which includes CAR call push buttons with the help of Small Device C Compiler in Ubuntu 16.04. This brings an IDE less and more reliable programming area that can be self-made according to product specification and also N-floored building using No Cabinet (NC) elevator that uses no landing calls.
