Knowledge Requirement 2:

Greensea EOD Workspace Interface and Operation

Operators should be able to launch and navigate the control software interface. This includes finding, identifying the purpose of and operation of each interface element.

Interface Elements

In the following list of knowledge requirements, interface elements are identified using the following naming conventions:

  • Button - an interface element that can be clicked to activate the feature.
    • Example: Zero Depth Button.
  • Toggle Button - a binary interface element that can be clicked to switch between one of two modes or states.
    • Example: Center On Toggle Button.
  • Radio Buttons - a group of interface elements that allow for selection of one of several choices for which only one can be active at any time.
    • Example: Pan/Measure/Waypoints Radio Buttons.
  • Selection - an interface element that allows for selection of one or more items from a list.
    • Example: ROV/Topside Selection for the Center On function.
  • Slider - an interface element for selecting a value within a range by clicking and sliding the slider bar.
    • Example: Sonar Range Slider.
  • Checkbox - an interface element that can be clicked to indicate whether the setting is on (checked) or off (unchecked).
    • Example: Heading-Fixed Checkbox.
  • Input - an interface element that allows text or numeric values to be entered. When the input is numeric, an increment and decrement feature may be included.
    • Example: Waypoint Speed Input.
  • Right-click Pop Up Menu - an interface element that is activated by a right click for the purpose of opening a menu of choices.
    • Example: Right Click on a Waypoint.
  • Display - an interface element used to present text or numeric data to the operator.
  • Tab / Subtab - Tabs and Subtabs are used to present a collection of related interface elements and information. By using Tabs and Subtabs, the amount of screen space required to present all of the information can be reduced.
  • Group - a region of the interface that encompasses several related elements and is defined by a border and a text heading. This element is not selectable, and no actions are associated with it.
    • Example: Waypoints Group

Visual Conventions:

  • Enabled buttons/features are displayed in green.
  • Disabled buttons/features are displayed in blue.
  • Green borders indicate communications established with devices.
  • Gray border indicate communications is not established with devices.
  • Red borders indicated a device fault.
