New challenges have information, user actions, and technology, learning while building and To do so, each of the four main pilots is also come up for user semantic data. It allows proving through achievements. The core being supervised by one of the main Smarcos project aims to help of Smarcos Complex system control is: partners of the WP, with the other users of interconnected interaction: multiple platforms, applications to follow the users partners providing support when embedded systems by ensuring multi-user applications, actions, predict needs and Aviation pilot: New technology needed. The partners also collaborate adapted to the Electronic Flight Bag, their interusability.
