The elevator group supervisory control systems (EGSCS) are the control systems that systematically manage three or more elevators in order to efficiently transport the passengers in a building. Double-deck elevators, where two elevators are connected with each other, serve passengers at two consecutive floors simultaneously. Double-deck elevator systems (DDES) become more complex in their behavior than conventional single-deck elevator systems (SDES). Recently, artificial intelligence (AI) technology has been used in such complex systems. Genetic network programming (GNP), a graph-based evolutionary method, has been applied to EGSCS and its advantages are shown in some papers. GNP can obtain the strategy of a new hall call assignment to the optimal elevator when it performs crossover and mutation operations to judgment nodes and processing nodes. Meanwhile, destination floor guidance system (DFGS) is installed in DDES, so that passengers can also input their destinations at elevator halls. In this paper, we have applied GNP to DDES and compared DFGS with normal systems. The waiting time and traveling time of DFGS are all improved because of getting more information from DFGS. The simulations showed the effectiveness of the double-deck elevators with DFGS in different building traffics
