The first applications of the design of operator interfaces with CognitiveWorkspace Analysis and Ecological Interface Design were in the field of power plants and process control. These applications are similar to the DURESS microworld, for which the first EID design was made. The workspace analysis for these domains can then be similar to the analysis elaborated for DURESS. At the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of the Delft University of Technology, in several projects now EID has been applied to a different work domain, namely vehicle control. These projects have focused on, among others, conflict avoidance in aircraft and ships, terrain avoidance and energy management, and on the control of Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles. In applying Ecological Interface Design to vehicle control, the workspace analysis needed to be adapted to a new application domain. The results may serve as inspiration for workspace analyses in the vehicle control domain or other domains.
