This paper introduces an operation control method with a learning function for single elevators. The method learns passengers' "punctual" elevator use, e.g. a regular time to leave for work in the morning in a residential building, and serves an elevator prior to the learned floor which stands by for each learned passenger. Computer simulation shows it can serve an elevator prior to the learned floor and the passenger can board the elevator immediately when arriving passengers number is 2 persons or less per 5 minutes. Measured operation data at an actual residential building show waiting time was about 10% shorter than with the conventional method.
