So far, many studies on Double-Deck elevator systems (DDES) have been done for exploring some more efficient algorithms to improve the system transportation capacity, especially in a heavy traffic mode. The main idea of these algorithms is to decrease the number of stops during a round trip by grouping the passengers with the same destination as much as possible. Unlike what happens in this mode, where all cages almost always keep moving, there is the case, where some cages become idle in a light traffic mode. Therefore, how to dispatch these idle cages, which is seldom considered in the heavy traffic mode, becomes important when developing the controller of DDES. In this paper, we propose a DDES controller using genetic network programming with idle cage assignment algorithm embedded for a light traffic mode.
