Elevate is a development platform for elevator control systems and an advanced elevator traffic analysis tool. The program is written in the C++ language using the latest object oriented programming techniques, and has a Microsoft Windows† user interface. Passengers are generated automatically from arrival rates entered by the user. The elevators answer passenger calls and directed by the selected dispatcher algorithm. An analysis of passenger waiting and transit times is given. Elevate applies research in ideal elevator kinematics giving total control of elevator speed profiles.
