    Designing, Understanding, and Operating Complex Human-Machine Systems




    Many computer-based systems are vastly more complex than the wireless information appliances that are currently attracting so much attention. Some of these systems, such as air traffic control, commercial and military aircraft, commercial shipping, municipal rapid-transit networks, regional power plants, and oil and natural gas pipelines, are important components of the global economy and daily human existence. This panel considers human interaction with complex, automated systems; describes applications of appropriate technologies for those interactions; and explores challenging research issues.
