  1. 1. Decision Making in Preflight Operations : A study of memory supports and feedback

    Author : Kristina Enflo; Örjan Wikforss; Lena K. Mårtensson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Human Factors; Man-Machine Systems; Decision Making; Decision Support; Feedback; Commercial Aviation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to explore how support systems enable human control within normal flight operations. The thesis focuses on the use of memory supports during flight, such as a handheld computing device, memory strategies and checklists. The support systems are studied from the theoretical perspective of Human Factors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Differences in Situational Awareness and How to Manage Them in Development of Complex Systems

    Author : Jens Alfredson; Kjell Ohlsson; Gunilla Derefeldt; Erland Svensson; Martin Helander; Clemens Weikert; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Situational Awareness; Complex Systems; Human Factors; Development; Work sciences and ergonomics; Arbetsvetenskap och ergonomi;

    Abstract : Situationsmedvetenhet (Eng. Situational Awareness), (SA), handlar om att ha koll på läget och vara medveten om vad som händer. Redan då ett komplext system utvecklas får vi en möjlighet att påverka vilken SA en framtida användare av systemet kan komma att få. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human Engineering of Sensor Fusion Systems in Fighter Aircraft

    Author : Peter Svenmarck; peter Wide; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : A pressing concern in modern fighter aircraft cockpit design is how to present and reduce large amounts of data obtained from several sensor observations of the same object. Currently, sensor observations are presented individually as overlays or in different displays requiring the pilot to control each sensor and integrate observations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Usefulness in Representation Design

    Author : Martin Howard; Peter Wright; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This dissertation outlines a perspective in Human Factors in which artifacts play a central, but subordinate role. It lies at the intersection of (a) influences from information systems development, (b) an ecological approach to cognition, (c) practical problems faced by human factors design in complex systems, and (d) methodological inspirations from industrial design and ethnography.

  5. 5. User trust here and now but not necessarily there and then - A Design Perspective on Appropriate Trust in Automated Vehicles (AVs)

    Author : Fredrick Ekman; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Automated Vehicles AV ; Design Variables; Trust Framework; Appropriate User Trust; User-Centred Design Perspective; Contextual Aspects; Trust Factors; Information;

    Abstract : Automation may carry out functions previously conducted only by humans. In the past, interaction with automation was primarily designed for, and used by, users with special training (pilots in aviation or operators in the process industry for example) but since automation has developed and matured, it has also become more available to users who have no additional training on automation such as users of automated vehicles (AVs).
