This chapter introduces a set of case studies that are used in the rest of the book. They encompass well-known problem domains in human–computer interaction research and provide a practical focus for the approaches presented in this book. The set of case studies includes case studies concerned with the controller interface to a (semiautomated) nuclear power plant; a partly autonomous arrival management interactive system in the domain of air traffic control; a user interface for new interactive cockpits; and an interactive system used in rural and urban areas to maintain wind turbines. The final case study brings an interesting perspective for formal techniques, namely interactive public displays.
