Paper Abstract

The design of intelligent helmet mounted displays requires addressing what information should be presented and how should that information be presented. This paper presents a systematic approach for identifying what information should be displayed, the context sensitive nature of the information, and context dependent means of deciding how to display the information. This approach incorporates the following features.First, the representation of content separate from the means of display in the information and representation of multiple perspectives of context. Second, the characterization of the display device and the explicit device and the explicit representation of the design problem space for mapping information to display media methods. Third, identification of the worth and cost estimates associated with each information-to-display-method choice. Finally, a mechanism for allocating information to display media methods at both design-time and run-time. The approach provides support for the hierarchical representation of goals using communicative acts, least-commitment constraint posting for display plans, and context sensitive evaluation of worth and cost values used to allocate information to media. This approach also support traceability of design decisions.
