In this paper, the well-known emergent phenomenon of bunching as appearing in lift group traffic control systems is taken as a technical scenario for validating the generic observer/controller architecture which has been designed as part of an anticipated organic framework – providing generic toolbox mechanisms to observe, analyse, and control emergent behaviour in self-organising systems. In particular, we show how to control and prevent global, collective, unwanted behavior of groups of lifts, based on observations of the local behaviour of lift cabins.
