In many practical control tasks, human controllers (HC) can preview the trajectory they must follow in the near future. This paper investigates the effects of the length of previewed target trajectory, or preview time, on HC behavior in rate tracking tasks. To do so, a human-in-the-loop experiment was performed, consisting of a combined target...

The Earth’s properties, composition and structure ahead of a tunnel boring machine (TBM) should be mapped for hazard assessment during excavation. We study the use of seismic-exploration techniques for this purpose. We focus on a seismic system for soft soils, where shear waves are better and easier to interpret than compressional waves, as has...

This study attempts to partially explain the characteristics of the human perceptual remnant, following Levison’s representation of the remnant as an equivalent observation noise. Eye activity parameters are recorded using an eye tracker in two compensatory tracking tasks in which the visual information is presented using either a first or...

In seismic exploration, the delineation of large bodies with hard exterior contrasts but nearly constant interior properties is a challenge. Examples include salt diapirs, salt slabs, anhydrite or basalt layers. Salt geometries are of particular interest because they often have hydrocarbon reservoirs on their sides or underneath. This...

In manual control, the human operator primarily responds to visual inputs but may elect to make use of other available feedback paths such as physical motion, adopting a multi-channel control strategy. Hu- man operator identification procedures generally require a priori selection of the model structure, which can be problematic as the exact...

Knowledge of how human operators’ tracking behavior is affected by simulator motion cueing settings is of great value for flight simulator design and fidelity evaluations. Previous studies have revealed strong effects of degraded motion cueing quality on human operator control behavior in compensatory tracking, but the presented visual cues in...

The human neuromuscular system can be seen as a versatile and extremely adaptive actuator. Through co-contraction and reex modulation, the properties of the neuromuscular system can be modified, leading to a change in movement response to externally applied forces. These properties are normally expressed in the form of the neuromuscular...

While many realistic manual control tasks require human operators to control multiple degrees-of-freedomsimultaneously, our understanding of such multi-axis manual control has not moved far beyond considering it simply as the control of multiple fully-independent axes. This investigation aims to further our understanding of multi-axis control by...

Manual control cybernetics aims to understand and describe how humans control vehicles and devices, such that more effective human-machine interfaces can be designed. Current cybernetics theory is primarily based on technology and analysis methods developed in the 1960s and has shown to be limited in its capability to capture the full breadth of...

The calibration of Angular Accelerometers requires a controlled test with a known acceleration profile. However, current turn-tables have been designed primarily for generating a constant rotational velocity. To generate a profile with varying angular acceleration we propose using constant rotational velocity on the two axes of a 2-axes motion...

Citizens’ use of Open Data is often limited to the use of apps. The design of the (app based) public service as well as the interpretation of the data is done for them. The organization of local hackathons can promote citizens’ data literacy and better use of available
Open Data for service transformation purposes. This promises to nicely...

A characterization of an angular accelerometer sensor is performed with a frequency- response experiment. To assess angular accelerometer dynamic properties, a position-based calibration table is utilized to provide the excitation input. The angular accelerometer specifications and calibration table limitations dfine a constrained test envelope...

We investigated one-dimensional numerical dispersion curves and error behaviour of four finite-element schemes with polynomial basis functions: the standard elements with equidistant nodes, the Legendre-Gauss-Lobatto points, the Chebyshev-Gauss-Lobatto nodes without a weighting function and with. Mass lumping, required for efficiency reasons and...

Motion cueing algorithms (MCA) are used in motion simulation to map the inertial vehicle motions onto the simulator motion space. To increase fidelity of the motion simulation, these MCAs are tuned to minimize the perceived incoherence between the visual and inertial motion cues. Despite time-invariant MCA dynamics the incoherence is not...

We inverted seismic field data for a continuous, laterally invariant P-wave velocity profile. Instead of the usual approach that involves horizontal layers with piecewise constant densities and velocities, we consider models of one or two layers with a constant gradient of the squared slowness above a homogeneous halfspace. With a single layer...

With the development of moving-based flight simulators in mind, a large number of researchers have considered human manual control behavior in tasks where the motion of the controlled vehicle can be felt by the pilots. While it is known that the dynamics of the controlled vehicle are a key factor that determines the usefulness of motion feedback...

The concept of trajectory-based operations as proposed by SESAR and NextGen seeks to increase airspace efficiency and capacity by introducing time as an explicit control variable. Such form of operations lean heavily on the introduction of higher levels of automation to support the human air traffic controller in performing this new task. In...

With the role of angular accelerometers in future fault-tolerant flight control systems, an in-depth evaluation of their performance then becomes a critical issue from the perspective of control system design. In this paper, a position-based calibration table is utilized to provide a sufficiently accurate angular acceleration reference in the...

A short lead time of the Product Development Process (PDP) is an important competitive advantage for companies. Design automation solutions provide a means to reduce the lead time and improve quality, but their development requires some investment. Before a company can commit to the development of an automation initiative, it requires an...

For multi-parameter problems, such as the seismoelectric system, sensitivity analysis through resolution functions is a low-cost, fast method of determining whether measured fields are sensitive to certain subsurface parameters. We define a seismoelectric resolution function for the inversion of a bulk density perturbation. The synthetic data...
