  • Cognitive task and ambient noise-based investigation on cognitive
           development of roadside school children

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Recently, noise pollution has become a considerable environmental concern, with extended exposure linked to numerous health problems, including sleep disturbances, elevated blood pressure, psychological health, and hormone levels. This research delves into the effects of road traffic noise on the cognitive growth of school-aged children, a group particularly sensitive to environmental stressors. The study measured ambient noise levels using two sound level meters and assessed students’ performance in cognitive tasks in both prevailing and controlled quiet environments. Cognitive assessments were employed to determine the influence of noise on learning outcomes, and a survey was conducted to investigate both the direct and indirect effects of noise pollution on their health and mental well-being. Results indicate that the observed noise levels significantly surpassed the limit of 35 dB(A) (inside the classroom) set by the World Health Organization (WHO), highlighting a critical level of noise pollution exposure among students. A comparison of student performance showed marked improvements in a controlled, quiet environment compared to the prevailing conditions. Statistical analyses, including paired t-tests, confirmed these findings in most classes. Exposure condition changes significantly decreased by 8.5 dB(A) and 13.6 dB(A) in noise levels at schools A and B, respectively. Additionally, evaluation of cognitive scores pointed to a more pronounced effect of noise pollution on female students than male students. Perception surveys showed severe exposure to noise-induced annoyance and speech intelligibility in the classroom. The study emphasizes the urgent need for effective noise reduction measures in schools to protect children’s health and enhance their cognitive development.

  • Alert and on task: decoding how mental alertness and workload influence
           maritime operators task performance using task network modeling

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The rapid technology growth in the maritime defense sector demands efficient and effective human performance, particularly in roles involving navigation, tactical decision-making, and emergency responses. To accommodate this demand, our study aims to find the effects of the two most significant performance influencing factors i.e., mental alertness and workload on the performance of Electronic Support Measures (ESM) receiver operators in complex task environments of a surface combat ship. A Discrete Event Simulation model with the Task Network Modeling approach was developed in IPME software. Alertness, measured by the Karolinska Sleepiness Scale (KSS), was predicted for Crew Chiefs’ schedules (4–8, 6–6, and 8–8) using the Three Process Model in FIPS software. The simulation integrated KSS predictions and VACP workload values, with 10 simulation runs, for each schedule, to assess the effects of mental alertness and workload on the total number of signals missed, the total number of signals logged, and percentage time at risk. The findings reveal that mental alertness variation due to different shift patterns in combination with mental workload significantly influence performance metrics, especially during night time operations, highlighting potential attention lapses and reduced efficiency. This comprehensive analysis provides valuable insights into the dynamics of shift work and task demands, aiming to enhance operational safety and performance in critical environments. The study’s methodology and findings offer a foundation for further research and practical applications in various industries where managing mental alertness and workload is crucial for safety and efficient crew performance.

  • Safety TransfEr Methodology (STEM): a structured methodology for
           transferring safety innovation across sectors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This research sought to develop a structured methodology for transferring resilience resources and safety innovation across industrial sectors, specifically, from aviation to maritime. As transportation sectors struggle to adapt to new economic realities and seek to prosper in new operational contexts there is a need to preserve resources and invest in change initiatives which will derive meaningful impact. A structured methodology to guide a principled transfer of safety solutions across sectors would be a sustainable method of improving the resilience of the sector. An action research approach was adopted. A five-step methodology was developed in cooperation with three maritime organisations to identify challenges and resilience resources from aviation which could be feasibly transferred and implemented. Five steps were identified as being key to a principled transfer of resilience resources from aviation to maritime. They were as follows: (1) industry comparison and database of aviation resilience resources; (2) maritime user needs and gap analysis, and resilience resources evaluation and selection; (3) scenarios production and resources mapping onto scenarios; (4) feasibility analysis; and (5) implementation plan. The results highlight the utility of combining bottom-up (identifying problems) and top-down (identifying a database of resources) approaches at the outset. A comprehensive workshop-based feasibility analysis is also key to ensuring the identified resources can be effectively implemented in the destination sector.

  • Decision support for CBRN avoid and protect missions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Modern Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear (CBRN) operations require a significant reduction in the time between decision making and decision execution. This calls for effective decision support to improve situational awareness (SA) at the lowest practical echelon. Applied Research Associates, Inc. conducted a 22-month project to research Avoidance and Protection, the CBRN phase with greatest uncertainty and cognitive work demands, to determine how the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) could best support operator procedures and decision making. We confirmed U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) CBRN doctrine, created battalion commander, medical officer, CBRN Specialist, and Soldier or Marine use cases, developed a concept video around existing CBRN passive defense workflows and tasking, then reviewed the concept with CBRN Specialists returning from deployment as well as Integrated Early Warning and CBRN Support to Command-and-Control developers. Resulting improvement to decision support can more effectively sustain the operator’s observe, orient, decide, and act (OODA) loop while minimizing cognitive load.

  • Understanding the influence of AI autonomy on AI explainability levels in
           human-AI teams using a mixed methods approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract An obstacle to effective teaming between humans and AI is the agent’s "black box" design. AI explanations have proven benefits, but few studies have explored the effects that explanations can have in a teaming environment with AI agents operating at heightened levels of autonomy. We conducted two complementary studies, an experiment and participatory design sessions, investigating the effect that varying levels of AI explainability and AI autonomy have on the participants’ perceived trust and competence of an AI teammate to address this research gap. The results of the experiment were counter-intuitive, where the participants actually perceived the lower explainability agent as both more trustworthy and more competent. The participatory design sessions further revealed how a team’s need to know influences when and what teammates need explained from AI teammates. Based on these findings, several design recommendations were developed for the HCI community to guide how AI teammates should share decision information with their human counterparts considering the careful balance between trust and competence in human-AI teams.

  • Teaching advanced technology (ADAS) and use of touch screens in driver
           training in Norway

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As many as 4,601 people were injured or killed on the roads in Norway in 2022. This number is too high and highlights the necessity of putting road safety on the agenda. The car industry today is represented by a vast increase in advanced technology for drivers to interact with, and knowing how and when to use this technology is crucial for safe driving. Thus, our research question was: Does the Norwegian driver training industry teach advanced driver assistance technology (ADAS) and touch screens in their driver training' A survey was distributed to 1,058 driving schools in Norway, resulting in 333 responses. The results showed that driving instructors spend considerably more effort on teaching inbuilt driving assist technologies that enhance driving safety than on those that are designed to enhance safety but that, if not understood well, could lead to hazardous outcomes. Suggestions on how to improve driver training and driving instructor education are made. Research and practical implications are presented to make sure that driving education is updated and aligned with technological advancements in the automobile industry and to ensure traffic safety for all road users.

  • Understanding what factors affect firefighter use of site-specific risk
           information

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Fire services have a responsibility to record information regarding known hazards for sites posing unique and substantial risks. Such information is important, both for informing service planning, and for supporting the development of situational awareness and decision-making during emergency response. However, public inquiries and service inspections have raised concerns regarding the effectiveness of systems in place for recording, monitoring, and using site-specific risk information (SSRI). In contrast, a lack of research focus has been directed toward the use of SSRI, limiting the evidence base available for understanding the causes of these difficulties and how they may be addressed. The following study seeks to contribute to developing knowledge by examines what factors affect the use of SSRI across organisational levels and why. Interviews were conducted with 23 firefighters from operational and tactical roles in one region of the UK. Thematic analysis highlighted six key themes: (i) Differences in the use of SSRI across organisational levels, (ii) System accessibility, (iii) Content, (iv) Structure, (v) Quality, and (vi) Training. Findings indicate that SSRI use is affected by the relevance, structure, and quality of information, which are influenced by workload, training, guidance, and system accessibility. During emergency response, information requirements, time and cognitive capacity differ across organisational levels, influencing the extent to which barriers affect ability to use SSRI. The implications of findings are discussed in relation to informing future areas of applied cognition research, and fire sector decisions regarding the gathering and storage of SSRI.

  • Investigating levels of remote operation in high-level on-road autonomous
           vehicles using operator sequence diagrams

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The continuing development of autonomous vehicle technology is making the presence of fully autonomous vehicles (SAE Level 5 of Driving Automation) on the road an ever more likely possibility. Similarly, regulation changes show countries are preparing for autonomous vehicles to increase their presence on public roads for both testing and use after sale. With this in mind, solutions to the problem of disengagement from the autonomous driving system by Level 5 vehicles, due to damage, operation outside of expected parameters or software failure among other reasons are being investigated including remote operation. This research aims to give evidence for the inclusion of remote operation into the autonomous driving and define the types of remote operation that may occur from existing literature. The four types of remote operation are Remote Monitoring, Remote Assistance, Remote Management and Remote Driving. Operator sequence diagrams are used to evaluate these types of remote operation in likely scenarios they may occur and draw conclusions about the role and the tasks the operator will be required to complete.

  • Customizing ICU patient monitoring: a user-centered approach informed by
           nurse profiles

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Intensive Care Unit (ICU) nurses are burdened by excessive number of false and irrelevant alarms generated by patient monitoring systems. Nurses rely on these patient monitoring systems for timely and relevant medical information concerning patients. However, the systems currently in place are not sensitive to the perceptual and cognitive abilities of nurses and thus fail to communicate information efficiently. An efficient communication and an effective collaboration between patient monitoring systems and ICU nurses is only possible by designing systems sensitive to the abilities and preferences of nurses. In order to design these sensitive systems, we need to gain in-depth understanding of the user group through revealing their latent individual characteristics. To this end, we conducted a survey on individual characteristics involving nurses from two IC units. Our results shed light on the personality and other characteristics of ICU nurses. Subsequently, we performed hierarchical cluster analysis to develop data-driven nurse profiles. We suggest design recommendations tailored to four distinct user profiles to address their unique needs. By optimizing the system interactions to match the natural tendencies of nurses, we aspire to alleviate the cognitive burden induced by system use to ensure that healthcare providers receive relevant information, ultimately improving patient safety.

           extended reality terrorist incident

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Emergency response decision making is crucial in managing critical incidents; however, several studies have demonstrated the negative effects of decision inertia. Understanding the manifestation and impact of decision inertia, as well as utilising extended reality (XR) technology with 360-degree immersion, should enhance decision making in high-stress environments and improve emergency response efforts. This study investigated decision inertia, using 109 participants, in an XR 360-degree environment and its impact on decision-making outcomes. The findings revealed that participants often opted for a sub-optimal outcome, and decision inertia scores varied across these outcomes. Linear regression analysis demonstrated that decision inertia scores significantly predicted decision outcomes, with higher decision inertia scores associated with sub-optimal decision-making. Participants prior moral decision-making did influence subsequent immersive reality decision outcomes and demonstrated a Bayesian updating effect. The Structured Tabular Thematic Analysis highlighted the importance of information validity, decision confidence, and scenario fidelity in decision-making within the immersive environment. The study provides insights into decision inertia in immersive virtual reality critical incidents and offers practical solutions for improving decision-making processes in emergency response contexts.

  • Team usability testing: development and validation of a groupware
           usability evaluation method

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As virtual teamwork became widespread, the importance of the usability of groupware has increased, as groupware must have high usability in order to properly support teamwork. Several studies have focused on the usability evaluation of groupware, yet, both in terms of science and practice, there is a lack of a method that, like existing empirical single-user methods, can be routinely applied in software development practice. The new Team Usability Testing method differs from previous methods in that it is an empirical method for evaluating synchronous (real-time) collaborative software that explores the team usability problems with the help of real or potential users. The method consists of questionnaires, screen recording videos and group interviews, and the framework of data processing is based on the theory of the mechanics of collaboration. In the four steps of the development of the method, empirical studies under laboratory conditions and real working conditions, and then, for validation purposes, analytical, heuristic evaluation with the involvement of usability experts were performed. During the development and the application of the method, the communication patterns of different teams were examined in terms of their relationship to software usability. In this paper we present the results of the second laboratory study and the heuristic evaluation in details. Overall, the method is able to explore team usability problems of different types of teams, making it a valuable element in existing methods for evaluating the usability of groupware.

  • Proposing the future skill requirements for maritime cyber security

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In maritime transportation, many onboard ships operations have been digitalized. The usage and implementation of information systems has offered new opportunities while also introducing new types of risk. Cyber security is one of the most significant challenges that maritime information systems have faced. These most recent changes and technological developments necessitate the identification of new competencies and skillsets in order for seafarers to take steps to protect themselves and the assets they are responsible for against the consequences of cyber-attacks. The present study is aimed at determining the future skill requirements for maritime cyber security to fulfill the inconsistencies between current and actual marine transportation demands. In the paper, the skill requirements for cyber security are comprehensively analyzed in terms of information and operational technology implementations and their regulatory requirements. The AHP technique is then used to establish the priorities of three categories as well as the skills within each category. Considering the strong relations between seafarer training and maritime safety, determining future skill requirements will improve overall maritime safety and security. Therefore, the present study contributes to a great extent, not just to maritime safety literature but also to the maritime industry.

      Abstract: Abstract With the development of autonomous cars, the incidence of motion sickness has increased. Current studies on the characteristics of motion sickness have primarily focused on its long-term characteristics while ignoring its short-term characteristics, especially for the reporting time of the real-time evaluation method. This study explores the long and short-term characteristics of motion sickness, and uses self-reported motion sickness ratings at the end of car motion (the high point) and 3 s after the end of motion (the low point). Motion sickness ratings increased with task vs. no-task conditions. There is no significant correction between gender and maximum motion sickness in this study. Moreover, participants with high motion sickness susceptibility experienced increased motion sickness. The difference between the low point and the high point is found to decrease as the motion sickness ratings increase.

  • Bridging system limits with human–machine-cooperation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Highly automated vehicles are subject to high expectations, encompassing safety improvements, efficiency in traffic flow and overall higher comfort. However, it is still unclear to what extent automation will be able to meet these expectations. Failures in sensors or erroneous data processing might bring an automated drive to a sudden stop. In such situations, the user of the vehicle could cooperate with the automated vehicle, to bridge system limits and directly continue the drive. How this cooperation process should be implemented and how much the vehicle user wants to be involved in this process is examined. In this paper, we investigate four different cooperation strategies, ranging from low involvement of the user in the driving task (pressing a button to continue the drive) to high involvement (performing the entire driving task with steering wheel and pedals). Participants experienced these strategies in a driving simulator, in which they encountered five inner city traffic scenarios where the automation reached its limits. The cooperation strategies were evaluated along the dimensions comfort, discomfort, mental demand, usability, perceived safety, trust in automation, personal benefit, and personal preference. As a main result, strategies with less involvement show increases in comfort and personal benefit as well as decreases in discomfort and mental demand. Further, perceived safety was rated highly for all strategies. In traffic scenarios perceived as more unsafe, strategies with higher involvement are preferred. This paper offers insights into user involvement in cooperative human machine interfaces, potentially enhancing the application of automated driving in urban traffic.

  • Study on identification method of driver fatigue considering individual
           ECG differences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Driver fatigue is one of the main causes of road traffic accidents. Because of the individual differences between drivers, the common characteristics of driver fatigue are not clear, and existing fatigue identification algorithms cannot meet the prospective requirements of fatigue identification. In this study, based on a driver's electrocardiogram signal, 17 feature indices were extracted as candidate features for driver fatigue classification from three aspects: frequency domain features, time domain features and non-linear features. In order to improve the generalization ability of the driver fatigue classification and recognition model and to reduce the negative impact of individual variability on the generalized model, the support vector machine (SVM) discriminant function information was introduced as the ranking evaluation criterion, the recursive feature elimination (SVM-RFE) algorithm was used as the search strategy, and the correlation bias reduction algorithm was introduced to avoid the evaluation bias, and the importance ranking of the fatigue feature indicators was realized. A ranked list of the importance of the candidate features in the fatigue sample of each test driver was generated. Based on the ranked list of features for each test driver, an evaluation matrix K of driver fatigue feature importance was proposed, and the feature importance index Va was defined. To quantify the importance of candidate features for overall fatigue identification, eight key features that significantly characterize driver fatigue were selected as the optimal feature subset. Finally, a two- class identification model of the driver fatigue state based on the SVM algorithm was designed to verify the effectiveness of the identification model considering individual differences. The results show that the average classification accuracy of the proposed identification model was 87.04%, which was 9.20% higher than that of a model that did not consider individual driver differences. The performance of the model was significantly improved by selecting features that were less affected by individual differences in the driver fatigue identification model.

           user interaction flows

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This research introduces IVIPAT: an in-vehicle information processing analysis tool. The tool consists of a taxonomy (e.g., filter, search, interpret, monitor, decide) that can be used to carry out a task analysis with focus on information processing. This taxonomy is combined with a subjective mental demand rating scale to identify the intensity of each information processing step. The taxonomy is evaluated and revised based on the feedback of N = 15 practitioners in Study 1 and then applied by a second sample of N = 15 practitioners in Study 2. Results illustrate the added value of the tool: through the rating, user interaction flow variants with differences regarding the mental demand can be identified. In this case, text input via rotary knob was rated as significantly more demanding than text input via handwriting (p < .01, df = 14) or keyboard (p < .05, df = 14). When analyzing information processing during the three user interaction flows, the analysts assigned a total of 359 mental operators with the help of the taxonomy. Results show that the increased load while using the rotary knob could be explained by the necessary interpretation of the direction of rotation, the tracking of the visual highlight during rotation and the overall increased number of information processing steps during interaction. Overall, the focus on information processing and applicability for practitioners distinguish the presented approach from previous ones, like keystroke-level models and cognitive architectures. To facilitate the application, survey materials and analysis examples are included.

           situational awareness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In conditional autonomous driving, drivers are prone to experiencing incidental emotions during non-driving tasks, which are unrelated to driving decisions but may have negative effects on drivers' takeover performance. Voice assistants have been shown to regulate incidental emotions. Therefore, this study endowed the in-vehicle assistant with emotional voice capability, matching the emotional state of the driver in conditional autonomous driving, in order to explore the effect of regulating incidental emotions. Forty participants were enrolled in a driving simulation experiment. During the autonomous driving process, participants were induced with two incidental emotions (happy or sad) and underwent experiments combining two emotional states of the driver and two emotional states of the in-vehicle assistant. The purpose was to examine the participants' takeover performance in autonomous driving, eye-tracking data, situation awareness, and to reveal the preferences of participants in different groups regarding the in-vehicle emotional voice assistant and their trust in the automated system. The results showed that in-vehicle emotional voice assistants that matched drivers' incidental emotions exhibited better effects on emotional regulation, as evidenced by shorter takeover response time, smaller standard deviation of lane position, smaller maximum lateral acceleration, and better situation awareness capabilities. Drivers also prefer in-vehicle emotional voice assistants that have similar incidental emotions to theirs. Interestingly, the regression model revealed that drivers' incidental emotions and the in-vehicle emotional voice assistant affected the takeover response time in the takeover performance indices, which was mediated by situation awareness. The results of this study are expected to provide some inspiration for the design of current in-vehicle voice assistants.

  • Modelling operator control work across traffic management domains:
           implications for interaction design

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Traffic management in aviation, shipping, and rail transport shows similarities and dissimilarities in the work process. For example, they share the temporal aspect, but different levels of urgency in the control work set different requirements on monitoring, decisions, and actions. However, few studies have been presented that model and compare the different domains in terms of temporal decision-making. The Joint Control Framework (JCF) is an approach to analyse and temporally model operators’ control processes from a cognitive systems engineering perspective. In this study, we have used JCF to map, and compare, cognitive joints, such as perceptions, decisions, and actions, in temporally challenging control situations in air traffic control, maritime vessel traffic service, and train traffic management. Data was collected collaboratively with traffic operators, focusing on (1) identifying challenging traffic situations and (2) jointly modelling the temporal decision-making patterns of these situations using simplified JCF. Post-analysis was done by breaking down the results into different processes and comparing domains to ascertain how operators maintain control. An intermediate level of activity—between general monitoring and work with specific vehicles—was identified: processes-in-focus. A shared problem arises in the shift between general monitoring and the processes-in-focus. All processes-in-focus comprise cognitive joint cycles of perceptions, decisions, and actions. However, depending on the framing of processes-in-focus, the patterns of joints, such as temporal extension and complexity, differ. In the remainder of the article, implications for the interaction design, in particular the potential for human–AI/automation teaming with higher levels of automation and cognitive autonomy, are discussed.

  • Using problem-based exploratory training to improve pilot understanding of
           autopilot functions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Previous research indicated a need to improve pilot training with regard to understanding of autopilot logic and behavior, especially in non-routine situations. Therefore, we tested the effect of problem-based exploratory training on pilots’ understanding of autopilot functions. Using a moving-base flight simulator, general aviation pilots (n = 45) were trained to diagnose failures either without foreknowledge and guidance (exploratory group), without foreknowledge but with some guidance (exploratory-guidance group) or with foreknowledge and full guidance (control group). They subsequently performed six test scenarios in which their understanding of the effects of failures was tested by requiring them to deduce the failures and select autopilot modes that were still functioning. Those who received exploratory training with guidance were significantly more likely than the other groups to diagnose failures correctly. The exploratory training group also selected the most appropriate functioning autopilot modes significantly faster than the control group. The results suggest that exploratory training with an appropriate level of guidance is useful for gaining a practical understanding of autopilot logic and behavior. Exploratory training may help to improve transfer of training to operational practice, and prevent automation surprises and accidents.

  • Human-centered design and evaluation of a workplace for the remote
           assistance of highly automated vehicles

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Remotely operating vehicles utilize the benefits of vehicle automation when fully automated driving is not yet possible. A human operator ensures safety and availability from afar and supports the vehicle automation when its capabilities are exceeded. The remote operator, conceptualized as remote assistant, fulfills the legal requirements in Germany as a Technical Supervisor to operate highly automated vehicles at Society of Automotive Engineers 4. To integrate the remote operator into the automated driving system, a novel user-centered human–machine interface (HMI) for a remote assistant’s workplace was developed and initially evaluated. The insights gained in this process were incorporated into the design of a workplace prototype for remote assistance. This prototype was tested in the study reported here by 34 participants meeting the professional background criteria for the role of Technical Supervisor according to the German law. Typical scenarios that may occur in highly automated driving and require remote assistance were created in a simulation environment. Even under elevated cognitive load induced by simultaneously engaging in a secondary task, participants were able to obtain sufficient situation awareness and quickly resolve the scenarios. The HMI also yielded favorable usability and acceptance ratings. The results of this study inform the iterative workplace development and further research on the remote assistance of highly automated vehicles.
