Evaluation of Manual and Automatic Manually Triggered Ventilation Performance and Ergonomics Using a Simulation Model

N. Marjanovic, S. Le Floch, M. Jaffrelot, E. L'Her
2013 Respiratory care  
The nurses and paramedics considered the ergonomics of the automatic manually triggered device (EasyCPR) to be better than those of the manual device.  ...  The bench-test study described here was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of an automatic, manually triggered system, and to compare it with manual BVM ventilation.  ...  Our data are consistent with such findings, no matter what professional health-care group is reporting the data.  ...

Modeling people with motor disabilities to empower the automatic accessibility and ergonomic assessment of new products

Nikolaos Kaklanis, Georgios Stavropoulos, Dimitrios Tzovaras
2015 Applied Ergonomics  
Virtual User Models (VUMs) can be a valuable tool for accessibility and ergonomic evaluation of designs in simulation environments.  ...  In order to create such VUMs, we need to know the functional limitations, i.e. disability parameters, caused by each disability and their variability over the population.  ...  Special populations of individuals, including people with disabilities and older people, may have capabilities that are quite different even from what is published in some ergonomics guides for people  ...

What driving style makes pedestrians think a passing vehicle is driving automatically?

Pavlo Bazilinskyy, Tsuyoshi Sakuma, Joost de Winter
2021 Applied Ergonomics  
After each passing of the AV, participants rated whether the car was driven manually or automatically, and the degree to which they liked the AV's behaviour.  ...  The current study aimed to determine which AV behaviours contribute to pedestrians' judgements as to whether the vehicle is driving manually or automatically as well as judgements of likeability.  ...  We appreciate the support given by Sarvesh Kolekar and Sebastiaan Petermeijer during the phases of preparation and execution of the experiment.  ...

Use of an automatic tracker as a function of its reliability

SHARON M. MCFADDEN, BARRY L. GIESBRECHT, CHERYL A. GULA
1998 Ergonomics  
If automatic trackers are to be useful, we need a better understanding of how people use them under diOE ering levels of reliability and what the impact of use and reliability is on system performan ce  ...  H owever, these experiments employed a relatively limited range of conditions.  ...

An Algorithm for Automatically Choosing Distractors for Recognition Based Authentication using Minimal Image Types

Ron Poet, Karen Renaud
2009 Ergonomics Open Journal  
We have developed an algorithm, which has been reported earlier, to automatically detect if two doodle images are similar.  ...  When a user logs on to a recognition based authentication system, he or she is presented with a number of images, one of which is their pass image and the others are distractors.  ...  Our research has focused primarily on the use of what we call simple image types, of which doodles and Mikons are instances.  ...

Guidance for Human-System Interfaces to Automatic Systems

John O'Hara, James Higgins, Stephen Fleger, Valarie Barnes
2010 Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Annual Meeting  
Automation is ubiquitous in modern complex systems, and commercial nuclear-power plants are no exception.  ...  The objective of this research was to develop such guidance.  ...  Such automatically initiated actions, e.g., reactor SCRAM, are needed to support the safety of personnel and equipment.  ...

What are the Individual's Real Cares to Switch Personal Cloud Services?

Weiyi Luo, Young-Chan Lee
2014 The Journal of Information Systems  
Even there are lots of empirical studies in the field of cloud computing (Ratten, 2012; Gupta et al., 2013; Lian et al., 2014), but few of them gives an insight to the adoption or switching behavior of  ...  Whether the factors, found as important drivers to impact on the adoption or switching behavior of cloud computing in the enterprise level, still play the important role in the individual level is still  ...  validating the research model, but there are still some limitations of our study that we point out the following issues.  ...

Vibration and Noise Exposure during Pre-Commercial Thinning Operations: What Are the Ergonomic Benefits of the Latest Generation Professional-Grade Battery-Powered Chainsaws?

Martin Huber, Stephan Hoffmann, Frauke Brieger, Florian Hartsch, Dirk Jaeger, Udo Hans Sauter
2021 Forests  
However, the daily vibration exposure of about 2.42 m/s2, caused by the battery-powered chainsaw on the front handle, is still very close to the daily exposure action value set by the EU directives for  ...  The daily noise exposure of 89.18 dB(A) even exceeds the upper exposure action value. Consequently, a further reduction in the vibration exposure during work is desirable.  ...  We are particularly grateful for the support of the forestry district Emmendingen and its staff, especially the support of the proband, without whose commitment the trial would not have been possible.  ...
