This thesis will extend our PVSio-web prototyping toolkit ( with a library
of programmable widgets (displays and controls) for specific application domains. The visual
appearance of the widgets is based on those used in real systems, e.g., in car consoles, medical
device front panels, flight decks. Widgets will be developed in Javascript, and will provide APIs
suitable to control the visual appearance and the behavior of the widgets. For example, a widget
representing the speedometer of a car will provide APIs for setting up the speed value rendered by
the speedometer, and APIs to define the visual style (e.g., color, range of values) of the
speedometer. Another example is a widget representing a steering wheel, that will provide APIs for
signalling changes in the steering wheel\\\'s rotation and getting the rotation angle value.
Integration with external controllers, such as Joypads, will also be introduced as part of the
developed library.
