About this title:

Synopsis:

Transportation systems in buildings are part of everyday life: whether ferrying people twenty storeys up to the office or moving luggage at the airport, 21st-century society relies on them. This book presents the latest in analysis and control of transportation systems in buildings focusing primarily on elevator groups. The theory and design of passenger and cargo transport systems are covered, with operational examples and topics of special interest.

From the Back Cover:

Transportation systems in buildings are part of everyday life: whether ferrying people twenty storeys up to the office or moving luggage to the airport check-in, 21st-century man relies on them.

Control of Traffic Systems in Buildings presents the state of the art in the analysis and control of transportation systems in buildings focusing primarily on elevator groups. The theory and design of passenger traffic and cargo transport systems are covered, together with actual operational examples and topics of special current interest such as:

? noisy, on-line and algorithmic optimization;

? simulation-based modeling of passengers and goods;

? control of cooperative agent-oriented systems;

? proposal for a benchmark to compare new control methods;

? deployment and testing of transportation systems.

Special attention is given to the techniques and uses of simulation and a working simulator is included that allows readers to explore the subject for themselves.

The safe running of such automated traffic systems, though vital, gets rather taken for granted but workers in elevator control have pioneered the development of many modern control systems for employment in all sorts of traffic and scheduled systems being among the first to realize the potential of techniques like fuzzy logic, neural networks and genetic algorithms. For this reason, this exposition of recent work in in-building transport control will be of considerable interest to researchers and engineers in many areas of control, particularly those working in optimal or supervisory control, urban transportation systems and intelligent transport systems as well as to those directly interested in the elevator control systems under discussion.

 

 

Advances in Industrial Control aims to report and encourage the transfer of technology in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology has an impact on all areas of the control discipline. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of new work in all aspects of industrial control.
