Development and qualification of Adaptive Cooperative Human-Machine Systems (AdCoS) where many humans and machines act together, cooperatively, in a highly adaptive way.
HoliDes addresses development and qualification of Adaptive Cooperative Human-Machine Systems (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 involving several interactive Embedded Systems are not yet well-mastered in industrial development. 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.
