Wednesday 20th September 2017

This paper, relying on the first 60 years of lift traffic design, provides an objective view of the developments in lift traffic design since 1960. The paper will look at the contributions of, amongst others: Alexandris, Barney, Beebe, Closs, Dos Santos, Godwin, Lim, Peters, Port, Schroeder and Strakosch. Lift traffic developments are of necessity intertwined with lift traffic control algorithms and technology, including Call Allocation and interactive lift system simulation during the same period. A view ahead will be indicated. Footnotes indicate sources for their easy reference by readers rather than being in-line text.
