Lift model of Lucerne scenario
Model of interesting scenario involving a lift
This is a model of an interesting scenario that Meurig encountered whilst at a conference in
Lucerne in 1988, when he and two other delegates all managed to get out of the lift at the wrong
floor through a series of interlocking mistakes. It uses many definitions and is a good example of
the definitive style and is a good representation of Meurig's construal of the situation. This is
explained in the accompanying paper "Radical Empiricism, Empirical Modelling and the nature of
It also includes some automation: files introduced at later stages cause "the lift" to open "it's own"
doors and so on. Unfortunately the tkeden tool was not designed for a multi-agent simulation
such as this and there are various problems: a delay has been introduced to slow the model to a
speed where the scenario can be seen progressing... but the way the delay is modelled, /all/
agents are paused whilst the delay is active.
