An interaction mechanism is defined for the navigation of a representation of a physical space, whereby events or entities of interest outside the current view are detected, and flagged by adding a visual indicator at or near the edge of the view closest to the entity in question. By designating the visual indicator, for example with a mouse click or by directing the users gaze at the visual indicator, the representation is prompted to modify the representation to include the space incorporating the entity of interest. The point of view may revert to the initial point of view on a further user action or after a predetermined time, or the original point of view may be flagged as a new entity of interest which the user may then select. Multiple points of interest may be defined such that the user may jump from point to point.

HoliDes addresses development and qualification of Adaptive Cooperative Human-Machine Sys-tems (AdCoS) where many humans and many machines act together, cooperatively, in a highly adaptive way. They adapt to each other and to the context to guarantee fluent and cooperative task achievement. Such systems with higher levels of automation are urgently needed to enhance safety and to increase the confidence of human operators. However, adaptiveness in Cooperative Human-Machine Systems on the Health, Aeronautics, Control Rooms and Automotive market is still sadly limited. The development and especially the qualification and certification of AdCoS in-volving several interactive Embedded Systems are not yet well-mastered in industrial develop-ment. The lack of adequate means of compliance with human factors and safety regulations may force the designers to simplify systems in order to make them certifiable. This clearly compromises the huge potential AdCoS could have on increasing overall safety. In order to unleash this potential HoliDes will research affordable means of compliance which enable to formalize adaptation strategies on global many humans - many machines levels and local HMI levels in a coordinated way. This will be achieved by developing techniques & tools on 5 research dimensions: (1) automated AdCoS re-configuration based on e.g. real-time predictive human models; (2) holistic formal (human & machine) modelling and accelerated analysis; (3) new empirical task, exploration and validation analyses of AdCoS; (4) a formalized synergetic empirical and model-based methodology; (5) integration of all techniques & tools in a Human Factors Reference Technology Platform (HF-RTP) to foster interoperability and to support human factors along the whole engineering life-cycle. The HF-RTP will be closely connected to the technically oriented CESAR RTP to enable holistic development & qualification from both perspectives human factors and technical systems design.

The invention relates to the verification of properties of an interactive component having a recursive tree structure of subcomponents. The verification comprises creating an oriented graph from the tree, said oriented graph comprising arcs for the child relationships of the tree, and arcs for couplings creating upon couplings between the components. The verification comprises creating a second graph representative of the property, and verifying if the second graph is exhibited within the first oriented graph.

The invention discloses a vehicle management system which is energy centric. The system may be configured to operate on a terrestrial vehicle, a nautical or on an aerial vehicle. It is configured to allow a user input a route comprising legs, each leg associated with an activity and an energy consumption mode. The system captures parameters from sensors or sensor emulators to compute a position of the vehicle and a predicted energy consumption per leg. The system comprises a display unit which associates graphically the activities, their energy consumptions and their duration. It allows the user to simulate what-if scenarios, to continuously visualize the impact of modifications of some of the parameters of energy consumption on an energy/time/range budget. The invention discloses a vehicle energy management system wherein the simulation capability is configured to display the time spent on each activity in a scale which is commensurate to the energy consumption. The invention also discloses a vehicle energy management system wherein estimated variables which impact the energy consumption may be acquired by the system to validate the conditions under which the mission performed by the vehicle will be feasible. The invention may be adapted to other applications than vehicle energy management like project planning and electronic devices energy management, among other result oriented/resource constrained activities.

The invention relates to the development, control and execution of interactive software. An interactive component of the invention is configured to enable a defined interaction between the interactive digital system and an environment of the interactive digital system .It comprises a first subcomponent, defining a coupling between a second interactive component and a third interactive component. Said first subcomponent is configured, when executed by the interactive digital system, to generate an activation of the third interactive component conditional upon an activation of the second interactive component, said activation enabling the defined interaction.
