  • Age-related usability investigation of an activity tracker
    • Authors: Peter Rasche, Katharina Schäfer, Sabine Theis, Christina Bröhl, Matthias Wille, Alexander Mertens
      Pages: 187 - 212
      Abstract: Activity trackers, measuring motion and steps, enable users to monitor their behaviour and may support a healthier lifestyle. To gain more detailed insight into initial and long-term use, a two-phase explorative study with two age groups (young/old) was conducted. The age of the younger group ranged from 19 to 30 years and of the older group from 60 to 78 years. In total, N = 30 participants (15 younger/15 older) took part in the first phase of the study. This phase lasted 4 weeks and provided in-depth information on usability as measured by the post-study system usability questionnaire (PSSUQ), on motivation, as measured by a seven-point Likert scale and on subjective mental effort during the initial contact, as measured by the rating scale of mental effort (RSME). N = 8 participants (4 younger/4 older) out of the original 30 decided to participate in a second phase, which lasted 6 months and was designed to observe long-term use of an activity tracker. The results show that the activity tracker's usability is generally suitable for both age groups. All participants were able to use the activity tracker independently without any special training or instructions from the principal investigator. Further, this study revealed that length of use of an activity tracker is independent of technology affinity and perceived usability. It decreases over time depending on the user's knowledge about his or her physical activity. Finally, indication for age-related differences in the requirements and key functions of an activity tracker were found.

  • Somatosensory perception of running shoe mass is similar for both sexes
    • Authors: Mary G. Hausler, Taylor L. Conroy, Christopher L. Kliethermes, David S. Senchina
      Pages: 213 - 228
      Abstract: Somatosensory perception of running shoe mass has not been studied in females, and so it is also unclear whether it differs between the sexes. Seventy-five young adults (50 females, 25 males) participated across two experiments to determine mass perception accuracy when hands vs. feet were used, and whether relative shoe mass range influenced experimental outcomes. Somatosensory perception of running shoe mass was similar for both sexes (regardless of the relative range of shoe mass), and hands were more accurate than feet, especially when hefting multiple models simultaneously vs. one-at-a-time. If shoe mass is an important consideration for consumers when trying shoes in retail settings, they should trust the perception of their hands more than their feet.

  • Impact of image-guided surgery on surgeons' performance: a
           literature review
    • Authors: Maria Luz, Gero Strauss, Dietrich Manzey
      Pages: 229 - 263
      Abstract: The goal of current work is to provide a literature review of the performance consequences of image-guided surgery (IGS) use. Regarding IGS system functionalities, the pattern of results suggests to distinguish between IGS systems which only provide information support (e.g. pointer-based systems) and those which directly intervene in surgeons' decision-making and actions (e.g. instrument disablement). The former offer benefits for patient safety and surgical outcome, as well as improved intraoperative orientation for surgeons, helping them to identify anatomical structures. Furthermore, IGS systems providing information support seem to shorten the time needed for surgery and reduce the subjective workload. IGS systems which intervene in a surgeon's decision-making and actions also have positive impact on patient safety and surgical outcome. In addition, these systems seem to reduce the physiological effort of surgeons. However, they can also prolong surgery and increase the subjective workload.

  • The acceptance of a prototype rear-view assistant for older cyclists: two
           modalities of warnings compared
    • Authors: C. Engbers, R. Dubbeldam, J.H. Buurke, L. Schaake, M. De Goede, J.S. Rietman, D. De Waard
      Pages: 264 - 281
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects on behaviour, mental effort and acceptance of a simple prototype of an electronic rear-view assistance system designed for older cyclists that are at risk of falls. The prototype was incorporated into a simple cycling simulator and provided information about traffic from behind in two modalities: visual and haptic. Twenty-one older participants (>64 years) completed three conditions: warnings in two modalities and a control condition without warnings. Mental effort and acceptance were assessed using subjective rating scales and by monitoring changes in cycling speed. Less mental effort was reported when using the rear-view assistant. Significantly more correct decisions regarding a safe left turn were made with system advice. No significant speed differences were found between the two modality conditions. It is concluded that the electronic rear-view assistance system can potentially support the older cyclist successfully by warning for traffic coming from behind.

      Abstract: With semi-autonomous vehicles being pushed onto the market, driver monitoring systems play a relevant role in determining the user's level of engagement whenever an automated-to-manual transition of control is scheduled to occur. As current monitoring systems heavily rely on steering behaviour and ocular parameters as inputs for their algorithms, this study aims to investigate whether average heart rate represents a sensitive measure of driver mental workload. Participants from three different age groups (21-34, 35-53, 54-70 years old) were considered and the combined effects of mental workload (induced by interacting with the in-vehicle infotainment system via voice) and aging on average heart rate were investigated. Average heart rate was recorded using a portable heart rate monitor for commercial use. Results showed that average heart rate increased as the secondary task became more demanding. Furthermore, a significant task × age interaction suggested that as the secondary task became more demanding, younger drivers showed an increased heart rate compared to older drivers. These results are of the primary importance for the design of adaptive workload monitoring systems.

  • Designing adaptive systems: selecting an invoking threshold to improve
           human performance
    • Authors: Christina F. Rusnock, Christopher D. Geiger
      Pages: 292 - 315
      Abstract: Previous adaptive automation design research has focussed on the decisions of how to automate, how much to automate, and what to automate. Another important factor that has not been widely considered is when to automate. As adaptive systems become more viable, the design decision of when to automate (i.e. the workload/taskload level that should be used to invoke the adaptive automation) will become increasing important. This research uses human performance simulation to analyse the impact of adaptive automation thresholds on operator workload and situation awareness. Through an unmanned ground and aerial vehicle case study using human trials and discrete-event simulation, this research reveals that the effectiveness of the adaptive automation requires a deliberate trade-off between performance, workload, and situation awareness goals.
