Adaptive Automation: Using secondary task measurement to determine function allocation
Moh, Heng Seng (2012) Adaptive Automation: Using secondary task measurement to determine function allocation. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
The present study investigated the behaviour of secondary task performance in Adaptive Automation to determine whether it could be used as a sensitive index of operator’s mental workload to trigger changes in support system. The majority of this study is to verify the method that is been used in performance-based automation is appropriate for which it used secondary task measurement as an indicator to initiate changes in LOA to assist human operator in the right time with right amount. This investigation did not start a new experiment but used experiment data that was done by previous researchers. Previous experiment used simulation software called Automated Cabin Air Management System (AutoCAMS) which simulates a life support system in the operational context of spaceflight. During the simulation, participants were required to ensure system stabilization and repair all 10 faults when occurred. Meanwhile, participants also need to respond quickly to 2 secondary tasks.
