Today, cyber-physical environments (CPEs) are omnipresent–for instance as smart homes, cars, shopping environments, business facilities, Industrie 4.0 factories, and smart cities. Characterized by a large number of individual systems and devices with their sensors and actuators, the interaction paradigm from the user’s perspective is shifting towards system-environment interaction. Following this principle, a single user or user groups can freely choose an interaction modality to address the environment, which responds in multiadaptive manner. This paper presents a car repair garage scenario and introduces a dialogue platform, a device platform, as well as several related dialogue management and group interaction technologies. Collectively, they represent a major result of the MADMACS project aimed at developing a framework for multiadaptive interaction in and with CPEs.
