Method and Apparatus Managing Entities in a Physical Space

Abstract : The movements and interactions of mobile physical entities such as vehicles, individuals and so on in a physical space can be monitored and controlled by defining paths and regions with associated signalling operations in a graphical representation. The signalling operations can be defined to provide information as to movements and interactions to a system user, or to provide information or instructions to the entities or their occupants. Regions and paths may be connected, for example through the graphical interface, to pass signalling operations to each other so as to define complex interactions. Logic units may be provided between regions and paths to further process signalling operations so as to support further degrees of complexity. The operations of regions, paths, entities, connections and logical units can be presented in the graphical representation, for example as finite state machines.
