About the Edition

The purpose of this dissertation was to investigate the effects of the presence and magnitude of sensor noise on operators" performance and control strategies using an Ecological Interface Design (EID) interface and a Single-Sensor Single-Indicate (SSSI) interface. To assist in the study of this topic, concepts from sensor technology, cognitive psychology, and cognitive engineering were utilized. Three studies were conducted using different types of sensor noise perturbations with DURESS III, a representative thermal-hydraulic process simulation: (1) global random increases in sensor noise magnitude, (2) global gradual increases in sensor noise magnitude, and (3) local gradual increases in sensor noise magnitude. Three displays (P, P+S, and P+F) were used in the studies, motivated by different interface design principles. There were four main findings. First, the EID condition performed significantly better than the SSSI conditions when sensor noise was set to an industry average level. Second, the robustness of the EID interface was compromised by global and large increases in sensor noise magnitude, but no more than the SSSI interface. Third, increasing the magnitude of sensor noise in selected low-level sensors had an impact on the performance and control stability of the EID condition, but no more than the SSSI condition. Fourth, in all three studies, the introduction of uncertainty in the form of sensor noise to both EID and SSSI interfaces forced participants to explore different control strategies. A number of contributions resulted from this research. First, this was the first set of studies to use the DURESS III microworld to investigate the impact of sensor noise on performance and control strategies. Second, this is the first piece of research to empirically assess the impact of different sensor noise magnitudes on the robustness of an EID interface. Third, this dissertation was the first to empirically investigate issues related to increases in sensor noise magnitude to local low-level sensors and their derivations to emergent features. Fourth, these studies constitute the first investigation of changes in control strategies in the context of increases in sensor noise magnitude. The findings are believed to be important for the applicability of EID in industrial settings.

The objective of the study was to assess the effects of the presence and magnitude of sensor noise on performance and control stability using EID (P+F) versus non-EID (P+S) interfaces. The experiment followed a mixed design with interface as a between-participants factor and noise magnitude as a within-participants by: 8.

We studied the impact of sensor noise on operators ’ control performance using an Ecological Interface Design (EID) display with a representative thermal-hydraulic process simulation.

A number of studies have shown that EID improves the performance of : Olivier St-cyr and Kim J. Vicente. Ecological interface design (EID) is a theoretical framework for designing human-computer interfaces for complex sociotechnical systems.

Its primary aim is to support knowledge workers in adapting to change and novelty. This literature review shows that in situations requiring problem solving, EID improves performance when compared with current design approaches in industry.

The ecological interface design (EID) paradigm was introduced in the process control domain 25 years ago by Kim Vicente and Jens Rasmussen, as a way to help operators cope with system complexity.

In this paper, we report the sensor function design and implementation of a wireless sensor network application for measuring environmental acoustic noise.

sensor noise on the Ecological Interface Design (EID) framework, with respect to operator control performance. Effects on Configural Displays One aspect of sensor noise to consider is its impact on graphical elements.

For example, configural displays including several emergent features might be adversely affected by sensor noise. A theoretical framework for designing interfaces for complex human-machine systems is proposed. The framework, called ecological interface design (EID), is based on the skills, rules, and knowledge taxonomy of cognitive control.

The basic goals of EID are not to force processing to a higher level than the demands of the task require, and to support each of the three levels of cognitive control. Ecological interface design (EID) is a theoretical framework for designing human-computer interfaces for complex sociotechnical systems.

After brie°y summarizing today’s environmental noise assessment procedures, we give an overview of the var-ious quantities involved in measuring environmental noise.

We close with initial experimental results of using a sensor node to compute these quantities. Ecological interface design is an approach to interface design that was introduced specifically for complex sociotechnical, real-time, and dynamic systems.

It has been applied in a variety of domains including process control, aviation, and medicine. EID differs from some interface design methodologies like User-Centered Design in that the focus of the analysis is on the work domain or.
