This work analyzes state-based obstacles to programming devices designed for interactive human control. It develops a theory of statelock, a condition in which a control program is unable to synchronize with the state machine underlying the controlled device. It also presents design strategies to avoid statelock and applies these strategies to the home audio/video and telephone autodialer domains.
