Content: This book is about the international, interdisciplinary, and interesting field of human-machine systems.

It covers 25 years of development, describes the current state and illustrates the expected changes in this research area. Written by many of the most important persons that shaped this field, it is dedicated to one of their colleagues and friend, Professor Dr. Gunnar Johannsen from the University of Kassel.

It covers traditional areas like internal and mental models, workload, supervisory control, decision-making, and human control of complex systems in general. It also gives reference to recent developments and upcoming technologies, leading to knowledge-based and multimedia support, virtual displays, fuzzy logic, and integrating advanced visualization concepts and music into future human-machine interfaces.
