An elevator car call cancellation, or elevator car call erase is a feature which allows passengers to cancel or deselect their desired floor. This feature is usually optional, but some elevator companies put this feature as a standard feature in their elevators.

Sometimes, this feature is also implemented for hall call buttons, and it is often called elevator hall call floor cancellation.

Overview

This feature allows passengers to cancel or deselect their desired floor in case that they had changed their mind to go to a different floor or they selected a floor by accident. It can be activated by pressing the floor button they wish to cancel once or twice, depends on the elevator brand or model. Once they pressed the button once or twice, the lamp on the button will go off. On some elevators, this feature can be implemented on hall call buttons. Not all elevators have this because it is usually an option.

Most elevator companies offers this feature as an option, but some elevator companies puts this as a standard feature. It is offered on some elevator product catalogs, and it can be requested upon elevator planning.

When a car call has been cancelled, the elevator car will usually stops at the next landing floor. Some elevators would simply stops on the nearest landing[1] or open it's doors (like on Hyundai elevators).[2].
