Evaluation of navigation dynamics

The navigation dynamics are linked to the possibilities offered by the development language, in this phase the different solutions are evaluated.

Realization of the navigation prototype

Creation of the navigation prototype which allows an initial evaluation and validation of the previous phases and of the choices made.



Verification by operators and related adjustments to navigation and display.

Definition of Graphic Styles
