Graph of the csHMI concept Copyright: © PLT csHMI concept

The technology Client-Side HMI (csHMI) deals with a meta-model that describes representation and interaction functions of any desired interfaces.The concept is based on a ‘technology-neutral’ meta-model and an understanding of the basic elements that a universally valid visualization must have. These include graphical primitives like circles, rectangles and text, a template-system, but also primitives for interaction like events and actions.

The prototypical implementation was realized as a web-application at our chair and can therefore be used without installation.

Based on this meta-model, one can create individual HMI-models for applications like engineering- and operator station (OS).
