Abstract

An agent-based elevator simulation was implemented to test the validity of an advertisement scheduling system. The elevator simulation imitates the elevators and their advertisement system, thus testing the different schedules and sending the results back to the scheduler. To validate the results, certain data sets of the simulation application are compared with expected values. First results have shown that the created data is in a valid range around the estimations. Finally, methods to further improve the simulation are presented. It was found that agent-based simulations are a good method to test systems, which are too complex or expensive to test in the real environment.
