This thesis is about the adaptation of the design of the ReSpire cooling vest for female soldiers for in a military operational context. For cooling, the principle of ventilation by air and evaporation of sweat was used to extract heat from the body. The objective of this project was to design a version of the cooling vest which would fit the...

Cyberneticists develop mathematical human control models which are used to tune manual control systems and understand human performance limits. Neuroscientists explore the physiology and circuitry of the central nervous system to understand how the brain works. Both research human visuomotor control tasks, such as the pursuit tracking task....

Better understanding of manual control requires more research on human anticipatory feedforward behaviour. Recent advances include a human control model for preview tracking, and a subsystem identification (SSID) technique that uses a candidate pool approach to identify the human feedforward and feedback responses. This paper discusses the...

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to analyze the question “In what order of magnitude does the comfort and performance improvement lie with the use of a cooling vest for construction workers?”. Design/methodology/approach: The use of personal cooling systems, in the form of cooling vests, is not only intended to reduce the heat load, in...

Despite enormous investments in airport security, terrorists have been able to find and exploit vulnerabilities at security checkpoints. Existing vulnerability assessment methodologies struggle with accounting for human behavior, and agent-based modelling forms a promising technique to overcome this limitation. This paper investigated how the...

Objective: Use Fitts’ law to compare accuracy and throughput of three flight deck interfaces for navigation. Background: Industry is proposing touch-based solutions to modernize the flight management system. However, research evaluating touchscreen effectiveness for navigation tasks in terms of accuracy and throughput on the flight deck is...

This paper assessed four types of human–machine interfaces (HMIs), classified according to the stages of automation proposed by Parasuraman et al. [“A model for types and levels of human interaction with automation,” IEEE Trans. Syst. Man, Cybern. A, Syst. Humans, vol. 30, no. 3, pp. 286–297, May 2000]. We hypothesized that drivers would...

Series elastic actuators (SEAs) are interesting for usage in harsh environments as they are more robust than rigid actuators. This paper shows how SEAs can be used in teleoperation to increase output velocity in dynamic tasks.<br/>A first experiment is presented that tested human ability to achieve higher hammerhead velocities with a flexible...

In haptic shared control systems (HSC), a fixed strength of guidance force equates to a fixed level of control authority, which can be insufficient for complex tasks. An adaptable control authority based on operator input can allow the HSC system to better assist the operator under varied conditions. In this paper, we experimentally...

The grasping instruments used in minimally invasive surgery reduce the ability of the surgeon to feel the forces applied on the tissue, thereby complicating the handling of the tissue and increasing the risk of tissue damage. Force sensors implemented in the forceps of the instruments enable accurate measurements of applied forces, but also...

Consensus is growing that the flexibility gained with the introduction of programmable, electronic cockpit displays in the 1980s must be exploited to the full extent. An important candidate to become the primary flight display of future flight decks is the tunnel-in-the-sky display, a perspective flight-path display that shows the reference...

In the study "Control loops with human operators" this volume is concerned with the robot arm case. Servicing of satellites and assembly of space structures require robotic operations. These operations are controlled from the ground by human operators. Five operational modes for the combined space- and ground segment are defined: - high level...

In this report a model of the human observer and decision maker is described. A submodel of the human observer is formulated in linear estimation theoretical terms including the perception of the displayed information of a linear process and the central information processing stage. The subsequent decision process is described in terms of...

The study described in this report was aimed at assessing the potentials of the optimal control model structure to predict the important characteristics of realistic operational helicopter missions. The theoretical and experimental results indicate that the optimal control model succesfully predicts the best attainable (rather than the average)...

This report deals with a theoretical and experimental program concerning human monitoring and and control behaviour. A model for multivariable monitoring (an automatic approach) was tested against experimental data. Apart from monitoring, simultaneously monitoring and manual flight director control was studied to determine the interference...
