Autonomous I/O-Colour-Screen-System for Process Control with Virtual Keyboards Adapted to the Actual Task

  • R. Grimm
Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 1)


An autonomous input-output-system for process-control with virtual keyboards adapted to the actual task is obtained by combining a colour television monitor with a highly integrated microcomputer and working memory, a floppy disk memory and a light pen. The system allows an optimal man machine communication with regards to human engineering as well as an economical design and manufacture of control rooms.
