fair and efficient elevator designs

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

Hello, I am a graduate student at University of Rochester. I was wondering if there are any elevator scheduling algorithms or academic studies that consider fairness and efficiency of elevators from the perspective of the residents using elevators. (maybe some axiomatic approaches?) Thanks. Murat

There are many.

Two excellent references volumes are:

The Vertical Transportation Handbook - by George R. Strakosch (Wiley) and Elevator Traffic Analysis Design and Control - by Barney and Dos Santos (Peregrinus)

The former is more from a laymans standpoint but a much easier read. The second is much more technical in nature.
