  1. 1. Representing human-automation challenges

    Author : Jonas Andersson; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; human-machine systems; control rooms; cognitive systems engineering; automation;

    Abstract : Automation technology is widely implemented in process control domains due to its benefits of improving efficiency and enhancing control. However, use of automation also introduces an often complex intermediary between the human and the controlled domain, which can obscure from the operator how system functioning is achieved.

  3. 3. Borrowing the Bat's Ear for Automation - Ultrasonic Measurements in an Industrial Environment

    University dissertation from LTH, Lund University

    Author : Gunnar Lindstedt; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Automatiska system; control engineering; robotics; Automation; electrostatic transducer; piezoelectric transducer; echolocation; bat; automation; localization; recognition; geometry; distance; measurement; ultrasound; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : This work focuses on measurement principles based on ultrasound for applications in industrial automation. The measurements made are of geometric nature. The methods used are when possible based on experience and/or inspiration from the study of bats. READ MORE

  4. 4. Semantic Mapping in Warehouses

    University dissertation from LTH, Lund University

    Author : Saeed Gholami Shahbandi; Björn Åstrand; Roland Philippsen; Antanas Verikas; Martin Magnusson; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Automation; Robotics; Mapping; Semantic Maps; Warehouse Automation;

    Abstract : This thesis and appended papers present the process of tacking the problem of environment modeling for autonomous agent. More specifically, the focus of the work has been semantic mapping of warehouses. A semantic map for such purpose is expected to be layout-like and support semantics of both open spaces and infrastructure of the environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. The automation effect: Investigating factors that influence the driver response process in a safety-relevant event during assisted driving and after unsupervised automation

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Linda Pipkorn; [2020]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; automated driving; driver response; response process; automation; driver behaviour; take over; driving performance; test track;

    Abstract : Introduction: Safe vehicle automation can be achieved through a detailed understanding of drivers’ ability to respond to a safety-relevant event after a period of automated driving. For instance, there is a need to understand in which scenarios automation effects are present (e.g. delayed response, degraded driving performance, crashing). READ MORE
