Abstract : This final report provides the results of the Modeling of Embedded Human Systems (MEHS) project. The goal of the work was a new approach to modeling embedded human systems; that is, systems where components are both human and computational. These systems are unique since the differences in time for a computational controller, as opposed to a human-centric controller, will require special consideration for system-wide feasibility and stability. Our approach focused on several research areas for modeling the interaction and control of such systems for robust behavior, determining the key abstractions for defining families of such systems, and developing a methodology for simulating, exercising, and potentially verifying these models based on the known qualities of the human, computational, and physical components. Our approach leveraged results from control of distributed vehicle systems, system stability and controllability, modeling, controller synthesis, and real-time systems.
