Analysis, Design and Evaluation of Human-Machine Systems is a proceedings volume from the 8th IFAC/IFIP/IFORS/IEA Symposium held in Kassel, Germany from 18-20 September 2001. The Symposium is the eighth event in this prominent series of international conferences covering the multidisciplinary area of Human-Machine Systems. Sponsored by leading international organisations including IFAC and IFIP, the symposium recognises the enormous practical role for human-machine systems in a wide range of industrial and social applications. Human-centred designs and human-centred automation are important forces in developing the symbiosis between human society, nature and artifacts. In increasingly complex systems they are necessary for achieving higher efficiency, safety, performance, and satisfaction. Technological developments will increasingly only be successful if end-user participation and acceptance are guaranteed early in the life cycle. Multimodality and multimedia-based interaction styles are becoming more creative and flexible, while cultural and organisational aspects are becoming more important. These and several other issues are covered in this Proceedings, which will form an indispensable resource for engineers working on any project where human-machine interfaces are a key issue. Altogether over 90 papers are presented, including plenary contributions by leading world experts.The paper describes the design rationale for the application and the findings of an early user test. ... it possible that people can discover, and remember, how to use such appliances without any manual or explanation. This paper describes FRIDGE, an experimental prototype of a mixed-reality messaging appliance for the home, that supports message exchange and display for a household, whether thatanbsp;...
