1 Elevator System
In this assignment you are asked to use MATLAB to model a three floor elevator system. The model should consist of
the following elements:
Elevator: The distance between floors is d and the elevator has a jerk
j =
da
dt
=
d2
x
dt2
=
d3
s
dt3
bounded by a given constant j K. Given the distance and the jerk the elevator should move between floors
in the minimum time. Moreover the elevator should have an embedded logic of how to select the next floor by
taking into consideration different factors like the current floor(s) and the state of all the buttons at the different
