Abstract
A formal approach to the management of information involved in human-automation interactions is proposed. The mathematical formalism is enabled by employing the notion of hybrid systems. The information management involves ensuring correct information flow and shared cognition between human operators and machines. It is envisioned that the proposed algorithms will formalize the analysis of human-automation interactions and hence reduce the number of iterations that are common in the design and validation of automation solely based on human cognition perspective.
