How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Chapter
Full-text available
Systemic and holistic approaches provide a new way of thinking about, understanding and designing systems. In this chapter we aim to highlight the most significant and influential work in this trend, and in particular the achievements of cybernetics, systemics and coordination modeling. Starting with cybernetics, related topics like cybernetic orde...
Chapter
This chapter presents a generic system model called URANOS, that allows to design complex human-centered systems. It is not aligned to any particular discipline. Rather, it helps to build integral systems in different domains of science and engineering, even though it was originally intended to participate in the design of complex human-centered sy...

Chapter
Based on URANOS and its instantiations for human beings, integral thinking and coordination, this chapter presents a model for human-machine collaboration. Nine design principles are presented. They ensure that designing and operating human-centered systems respects human integrity in any human-machine collaboration, i.e. not harmed, or enslaved, r...
Chapter
In three specific model instantiations, this chapter demonstrates how URANOS can be applied to other research domains. The first instantiation, referred to as the body-mind continuum, addresses humans as holistic and spiritual beings embedded in their natural, informational and socio-cultural environments. The second instantiation provides a framew...
Technical Report
Full-text available
In this paper we present a new CPS model that considers humans as holistic beings, where mind and body operate as a whole and characteristics like creativity and empathy emerge. These characteristics influence the way humans interact and collaborate with technical systems. Our vision is to integrate humans as holistic beings within CPS in order to...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cyber physical systems (CPSs) are built of physical components that are integrated into the cyber (virtual) world of computing. Whereas there are many open questions and challenges, such as time modeling, interaction between cyber and physical components, our research focuses on how humans can be holistically integrated. Our vision is to link human...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cyber physical systems (CPSs) are built of physical components that are integrated into the cyber (virtual) world of computing. Such systems offer many open questions and challenges, such as time modelling, big data mining, system awareness, coordinating activities, and managing collaboration with and within external systems. Much of the published...
Technical Report
Full-text available
A new holistic approach defining and dealing with coordination in smart environments is presented. Coordination has been studied for many years, but a holistic approach from a generic theoretical model to a pervasive application has never been proposed. Our approach defines a generic model in order to understand and develop coordination aspects at...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper examines the design and implementation of a system to support firefighting exercises based on tools and ideas of pervasive computing. Through this development a range of technologies and conceptual tools were used, such as sensors, wireless communication, and the programming framework uMove; as well as context-awareness, situation manage...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Smart environments are increasingly available and support users in their daily activities in different ways. This paper presents a service-based approach for users active in a smart environment such as a building, campus or public place. The concept is illustrated through the SSP project which provides environment-specific and contextual services o...
