  1. 1. Engineering principles for open socio-technical systems

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Jenny Lundberg; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; principles; socio-technical systems; semantics; ethnography; empowerment; service; agent; sensor;

    Abstract : Engineering Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for robust information sharing is the fundamental area of investigation in thesis. Robust workflow based information sharing systems have the potential to be part of robust information infrastructures providing positive effects for the individuals and teams as well as opportunities for societal and economical gains.

  2. 2. A paradigm questioned a study of how the cultural relativity of modern management knowledge confines

    University dissertation from Umeå : Företagsekonomi

    Author : Olof Wahlberg; Mittuniversitetet.; Umeå universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Business and economics Business studies; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Ekonomi Företagsekonomi; Företagsekonomi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Business and economics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Ekonomi; företagsekonomi; Business Studies; management knowledge; cross-cultural management; development aid; technical assistance;

    Abstract : This study is based upon the double proposition that a transfer of modern management knowledge is an important component of the development assistance given to Third World countries and that this knowledge has a cultural basis thatrestricts its transferability. The very essence of the cultural basis is thought to consist of culture contingent implicit assumptions about phenomena in the reality. READ MORE

  3. 3. Facing failures : interactions between drivers and advanced driver assistance systems

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology. Department of Product and Production Development

    Author : Niklas Strand; Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Adaptive cruise control; Driver assistance system; Driver; Behaviour; Thesis; Adaptiva farthållare; Förarstödssystem; Förare; Beteende; Doktorsavhandling; 841 Road: Road user behaviour; 841 Road: Road user behaviour; 914 Road: ITS och vehicle technology; 914 Road: ITS och vehicle technology; 911 Road: Components of the vehicle; 911 Road: Components of the vehicle;

    Abstract : Drivers’ interactions with advanced driver assistance systems based on experiences from real driving and results from driving in a driving simulator were under investigation in this thesis. Questions posed were: - How do drivers perceive and interact with ADAS? - How are (technical) failures handled by drivers, and which are the consequences’ of these failures? - Which are the implications for diagnosis and detection of failures, as well as for system development? Special attention was given to driver behavior in response to technical failures in an adaptive cruise control system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Driving Safe in the Future - HMI for Integrated Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology. Department of Product and Production Development

    Author : Anders Lindgren; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Driver Needs and Requirements; Advisory Warnings; Integrated Warnings; Driver Assistance; ADAS; Cross-cultural Differences; Ecological Interface Design;

    Abstract : To be able to drive safely and efficiently, drivers need information from the surrounding traffic environment that make it possible to foresee early events that may negatively affect safety. A driver can in some cases perceive events that potentially have a negative impact on traffic safety, but in other cases not. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the interaction between driver assistance systems and drivers in situations of system failure

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology. Department of Product and Production Development

    Author : Josef Nilsson; RISE.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; adaptive cruise control; Chalmers driving simulator; automotive safety; controllability; driver assistance systems; functional safety; dependability; brake failure; fault injection;

    Abstract : The level of automation is increasing in road vehicles as driver assistance systems take control of both speed and steering. Benefits of this development are expected in the form of improved safety, driver comfort, traffic efficiency, etc. READ MORE
