1 US9582234B2
System and method for the automatic aggregation of industrial automation displays
Publication/Patent Number: US9582234B2 Publication Date: 2017-02-28 Application Number: 12/242,720 Filing Date: 2008-09-30 Inventor: Baier, John Joseph   Gordon, Kevin George   Hobbs, Mark David   Fevang, Monte Leroy   Schouten, Teunis Hendrik   Kui, Karen   Assignee: Rockwell Automation Technologies, Inc.   IPC: G06F3/048 Abstract: A data aggregation system comprises an aggregation server. The aggregation server receives from a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) graphics data comprising a graphical representation of a portion of an industrial automation environment over an enterprise network, receives operation data associated with an operation of the industrial automation environment over the enterprise network, and receives a request for a viewing session from a plurality of communication devices over a communication network. In response to the request, the aggregation server transfers the graphics data over the communication network to the plurality of communication devices. In response to the request, the aggregation server transfers the operation data over the communication network to the plurality of communication devices. A data aggregation system comprises an aggregation server. The aggregation server receives from a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) graphics data comprising a graphical representation of a portion of an industrial automation environment over an enterprise network, receives operation ...More ...Less
2 US8677262B2
Presentation of industrial automation data as a function of relevance to user
Publication/Patent Number: US8677262B2 Publication Date: 2014-03-18 Application Number: 11/863,183 Filing Date: 2007-09-27 Inventor: Baier, John Joseph   Bromley, Clifton Harold   Hobbs, Mark   Schouten, Teunis Hendrik   Reichard, Douglas James   Gordon, Kevin George   Jasper, Taryl Jon   Mcgreevy, Robert Joseph   Fuller, Bruce Gordan   Assignee: Rockwell Automation Technologies, Inc.   IPC: G06F3/048 Abstract: A visualization system that generates visualization(s) in an industrial automation environment is provided. An interface component receives input concerning displayed objects and information. A context component can detect, infer or determine context information regarding an entity. A reference component infers or determines relevance of respective display objects as a function of the context information. A visualization component dynamically generates a visualization from a set of display object, and spatially organizes the display objects as a function of the inferred or determined relevance. A visualization system that generates visualization(s) in an industrial automation environment is provided. An interface component receives input concerning displayed objects and information. A context component can detect, infer or determine context information regarding an ...More ...Less
3 US8566748B2
Method and system of a human-machine interface
Publication/Patent Number: US8566748B2 Publication Date: 2013-10-22 Application Number: 12/473,085 Filing Date: 2009-05-27 Inventor: Baier, John Joseph   Kui, Karen   Gordon, Kevin George   Hobbs, Mark David   Fevang, Monte Leroy   Schouten, Teunis Hendrik   Assignee: Rockwell Automation Technologies, Inc.   IPC: G06F3/048 Abstract: A human-machine interface system for an industrial automation environment is provided. The human-machine interface system includes a communication interface configured to receive machine data from an aggregation server, a user interface configured to display graphical data to a user, and a processor coupled to the communication interface and the user interface. The processor is configured to process the machine data to produce first graphical data including a first human-machine interface including one or more tabs, transmit the first graphical data to the user interface for display, and detect a pointer indicating an interest over one of the one or more tabs. The processor is also configured to process the machine data to produce second graphical data including the first human-machine interface including an open drawer corresponding to the one of the one or more tabs, and transmit the second graphical data to the user interface for display. The drawer includes a thumbnail graphic of a second human-machine interface. A human-machine interface system for an industrial automation environment is provided. The human-machine interface system includes a communication interface configured to receive machine data from an aggregation server, a user interface configured to display graphical data to a ...More ...Less
