The objective of this project is to develop a user interface management and development system, HYPERFACE, supporting real-time industrial applications.
HYPERFACE will allow technical users without specific software engineering skills to implement complex graphic interfaces to a broad range of processes and systems.
It will comprise the following software components:
- a user interface development system
- a user interface objects library
- a user interface execution system.
HYPERFACE will advance the state of the art in user interfaces by the inclusion of object-oriented technology and simulation and prototyping facilities. It will be implemented on networked Unix workstations, using OSF/MOTIF and X-Window.
The project results will be validated in two demonstrators (for a control system and a simulator) in two different application domains.
