The success of future fusion power plants as a sustainable energy source greatly depends on their uptime. This uptime relies on the plant's maintenance, which must be performed via tele-manipulation. Tele-manipulated maintenance is challenging, as exemplified by strictly selected and highly trained operators who still require more time to work...

Understanding how humans control a vehicle (cars, aircraft, bicycles, etc.) enables engineers to design faster, safer, more comfortable, more energy efficient, more versatile, and thus better vehicles. In a typical control task, the Human Controller (HC) gives control inputs to a vehicle such that it follows a particular reference path (e.g.,...

Haptic technology is more and more widely used to improve human interaction with devices, for example in touch screens of smartphones that vibrate when touched. Another application is haptic-tele-manipulation where a human controls a slave manipulator (e.g. a surgical-robot) by using a master device (e.g. a joystick). In haptic-tele-manipulation...

Van Dam, S.B.J. (author)
Future air traffic concepts foresee that in unmanaged airspace, to reduce workload of air traffic controllers and the resulting constraints on capacity, the separation task will be delegated to the flight deck. Technology-driven pilot self-separation support systems have been developed that present explicit automated solutions to deal with...

De Jong, P.M.A. (author)
During today’s aircraft descents, Air Traf?c Control (ATC) commands aircraft to descend to specific altitudes and directions to maintain separation and spacing from other aircraft. When the aircraft is instructed to maintain an intermediate descent altitude, it requires engine thrust to maintain speed, leading to increased fuel burn and noise...

The aim of this research is to contribute to the body of knowledge on mental models in the fields of design methodology, engineering psychology and human factors by studying the resistance of mental models to change. In this work the term cognitive resistance is introduced as the capacity to endure stimuli from the environment that contradict...

Amelink, M.H.J. (author)
In high–risk domains like aviation, medicine and nuclear power plant control, automation has enabled new capabilities, increased the economy of operation and has greatly contributed to safety. However, automation increases the number of couplings in a system, which can inadvertently lead to more complexity from the perspective of the operator....

Wiersma, J.W.F. (author)
This thesis describes my study of situation awareness assessment of Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) operators. VTS operators are the traffic controllers on the water. They are responsible for a safe and efficient handling of vessel traffic. They monitor traffic, provide information on request and coordinate movement of ships in (emerging) conflict...

There is a shift in traditional health care, from one-side dictated treatment to a situation wherein the patient is involved, self-determined, and performs self-care activities. This new patient role is complex, but by deploying Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the medical domain, eHealth services can stimulate maintaining a...

People do the laundry all over the world. About 500 million washing machines are in use at the moment. To reduce the heavy workload, washing machines were invented about 100 years ago. 50 years of innovations led to a reduction in water, energy and detergent consumption and the interface became easier to use. However, the overall usage of the...
