Part 3 - User-centered development and evaluation of human-machine interfaces (Bernhard Weber) - 45 min: The lecture consists of mainly two parts: (1) a general introduction to human factors methods and (2) an example of applying these methods in the field of robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery. In Part 1, methods of developing, improving and evaluating novel concepts of human-machine interfaces will be reviewed. It will be described how to involve end users in each stage of the product cycle, to determine user requirements as well as limitations and to evaluate concepts or systems accordingly. Besides qualitative methods like systematic field observations, semi-structured interviews, hierarchical task analyses and prototype testing, quantitative experimental methods like part-task or full scale simulations will be presented. In Part 2, the practical application of the user-centered approach will be illustrated by the example of DLR s surgical robot MIRO for minimally invasive surgery ...
Unusual classes of electronics enabled by recent advances (1-6) in materials science and mechanics principles can be designed with physical properties that match the soft, mechanical compliance of the skin, thereby allowing long-term (up to ~2 weeks) integration with nearly any external surface of the body, with form factors that resemble those of a temporary tattoo. These systems, referred to as epidermal electronics, qualitatively expand the range of physiological measurements that are possible in wearable device platforms (7-13). Many of these operational modes rely critically on an intimate, physical interface to the skin. Examples include precision measurement of temperature and thermal transport characteristics (14, 15), recording of electrophysiological processes and variations in electrical impedance (16-18), characterization of skin stiffness (5, 19), and monitoring of quasi-static or dynamic dimensional changes, such as those associated with swelling/deswelling or pulsatile blood flow ...
The world is a much different place today than it was 25 years ago. When this engineer began his professional career in 1981, the personal computer has just arrived on the scene. There were no flexible working hours or job sharing. Telecommuting was unheard of. Outsourcing was not feasible. Designs were on paper, typed, and drafted by hand. Nevertheless, we built things and built them well. We constructed plants and outfitted them with instruments put them through start-up.. We coveted our jobs and worked hard to maintain them. Corporations were the best places to work because they had all of the money and resources to make a young engineers career grow and expand. Training was paid for and mandatory. Atten-dance on the job every day, at starting time, and without excuse, was expected. Vacations were in one-week blocks, at a minimum. Promotions were prizes for which there was no equal.. It was easy for corporations to hire and retain the best people. There were not the choices that exist today. ...

OPC was designed to provide a common bridge for Windows-based software applications and process control hardware. Standards define consistent methods of accessing field data from plant floor devices. This method remains the same regardless of the type and source of data. An OPC Server for one hardware device provides the same methods for an OPC Client to access its data as any and every other OPC Server for that same and any other hardware device. The aim was to reduce the amount of duplicated effort required from hardware manufacturers and their software partners, and from the SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) and other HMI (Human-Machine Interface) producers in order to interface the two. Once a hardware manufacturer had developed their OPC Server for the new hardware device their work was done to allow any top end to access their device, and once the SCADA producer had developed their OPC Client their work was done to allow access to any hardware, existing or yet to be ...

The team HMI Implementation at Daimler in Ulm, located next to the University of Ulm, is working on model-based specification methods and testing of user interfaces, or human-machine interfaces (HMI). The user interfaces are for the so-called head-units in Mercedes passenger cars, which integrate infotainment applications such as audio, telephone and navigation. The user interfaces typically comprise a screen, multi-functional buttons, and in some cases speech dialogues (i.e. multi-modal user interfaces). At Daimler, specifications of the user interfaces need to be written, and head-unit devices from suppliers need to be tested for conformance to the specifications. We develop tools for model-based testing of the user interfaces, so both the specification and test models can be derived from a system model. A test case is a particular path through a UML state chart. The aims of testing are twofold, first to check the model, and second to compare the behaviour of the model to the head-unit ...

Recent advances in neuroimaging technologies have rendered multimodal analysis of operators cognitive processes in complex task settings and environments increasingly more practical. In this exploratory study, we utilized optical brain imaging and mobile eye tracking technologies to investigate the behavioral and neurophysiological differences among expert and novice operators while they operated a human-machine interface in normal and adverse conditions. In congruence with related work, we observed that experts tended to have lower prefrontal oxygenation and exhibit gaze patterns that are better aligned with the optimal task sequence with shorter fixation durations as compared to novices. These trends reached statistical significance only in the adverse condition where the operators were prompted with an unexpected error message. Comparisons between hemodynamic and gaze measures before and after the error message indicated that experts neurophysiological response to the error involved a systematic
The methods employed here involved a novel combination of existing methods adapted to the high-entropy alloy problem," Rickman says. "In addition, these methods may be generalized to discover, for example, alloys having other desirable properties. We believe that our approach, which relies on data science and experimental characterization, has the potential to change the way researchers discover such systems going forward.". At Lehigh, Rickman is a member of the Nano/Human Interface Presidential Engineering Research Initiative, a multidisciplinary research initiative that proposes to develop a human-machine interface to improve the ability of scientists to visualize and interpret the vast amounts of data that are generated by scientific research. He is also affiliated with two of the universitys interdisciplinary research institutes, the Institute for Functional Materials and Devices (I-FMD) and the Institute for Cyber Physical Infrastructure and Energy (I-CPIE).

The eyes acuity varies across its field of view (FOV), decreasing to 10% of its axial value at only 20°. We describe an optical system that radially remaps the pixels of a miniature display or sensor to match the varying acuity of the eye across its FOV. The variable-acuity technique increases the FOV of an electronic binocular system without any apparent loss in image quality. The result is a better, more efficient human-machine interface.. © 2002 Optical Society of America. Full Article , PDF Article ...

Ghost in the Shell 1.5: Human-Error Processor #1 (of 8): Holy shit!! Its a new (in English) high-profile manga series being released in pamphlet format before hitting bookshelves! In 2006! Thats a handy indication of just how much Dark Horse believes writer/artist Masamune Shirow is ingrained in the minds of the Direct Market; he, and perhaps only he can kick off a fresh new series with high enough floppy numbers to add that extra boost to the inevitable compendium. The pamphlets will apparently be in right-to-left format, though, just as a little gift to the other side of the market, though Im not entirely sure how much appeal Shirow even has to the contemporary manga devotee; certainly the assorted GitS anime continue to do well enough. In case youre wondering what this is, its actually a set of four somewhat self-contained stories that used to be part of Ghost in the Shell 2: Man-Machine Interface during its extended 1991-96 serialization in Japan, and wound up getting sliced out when ...

Prosthetic arms should restore and extend the capabilities of someone with an amputation. They should move naturally and be able to perform elegant, coordinated movements that approximate those of a biological arm. Despite these objectives, the control of modern-day prostheses is often nonintuitive and taxing. Existing devices and control approaches do not yet give users the ability to effect highly synergistic movements during their daily-life control of a prosthetic device. As a step towards improving the control of prosthetic arms and hands, we introduce an intuitive approach to training a prosthetic control system that helps a user achieve hard-to-engineer control behaviours ...
