Destination Reservation Guidance System (also known as Destination Floor Guide System or DRGS, EZShuttle, and Viridian Destination in North America(?)) is a destination dispatch elevator system product of Fujitec.

Overview

In this system, the passenger uses the Destination Floor Registration Panel installed near (or within) the elevator hall to register the destination floor. The DRGS system improves service by assigning the optimal elevator for each of the registered destination floors and assigning passengers to multiple elevator cars. Thus the system can reduce the number of stops, thereby reducing the journey time even during busy periods such as the up-peak period.

The system ease congestion in the elevator lobby during up-peak period and improving transportation efficiency by assigning an elevator car to each of the registered destination floors, and since each of the registered destination floors are assigned to multiple cars the number of stops before reaching the destination floor decreases, thereby reduces the journey time.
