With the rapid development of high-rise buildings, the requirement of the elevator’s speed is growing higher. And the vibration amplitude of elevator will also increasing with the improvement of running speed. The vibration problems of elevator have become the important factors that affect the comfort feeling of elevator. At the same time, the strong vibration will affect the normal work of elevator, and even cause accidents. So it's necessary to study the vibration characteristics of the elevator. In recent years, smartphone has developed rapidly, with a variety of sophisticated sensors; it has the powerful data processing and transmission capacity. In this paper, the author has presented an elevator comfort monitoring method based on smartphone. This method using Monitoring App can monitor the acceleration and inclination information using MEMS sensors embedded in smartphone. Then a confirmatory test for an elevator was designed, experimental results show that elevator comfort monitoring method based on smartphone is stable and reliable.
