As we have described in Chap. 1, achieving alignment between business and IT is one of the most important drivers for architecture. Architecture alignment is the problem of designing architectures at the infrastructure, application, and business levels such that each fits optimally with the other architectures. By studying project documentation...

In the present study relations between the level of impulse sounds and the observed proportion of behaviorally confirmed awakening reactions were determined. The sounds (shooting sounds, bangs produced by door slamming or by container transshipment, aircraft landings) were presented by means of loudspeakers in the bedrooms of 50 volunteers. The...

Acute mountain sickness is thought to be triggered by cerebral hypoxemia and be prevented by acetazolamide (Actz). The effect of Actz on cerebral oxygenation at altitude remains unknown. In 16 members of the 2005 Dutch Cho Oyu (8201 m, Tibet) expedition, the influence of Actz and exercise (750 mg PO daily) on heart rate, peripheral and regional...

In the space domain, the plans for manned missions to the Moon and Mars set substantial challenges for developing crew support. For such long-duration missions, there is a need for a Mission Execution Crew Assistant (MECA) that supports (groups of) humans and machines to act in a distributed, autonomous but cooperative way. The objective of MECA...

Vibrotactile displays use the skin as information channel. The last decade, there has been a growing interest in these displays because of their potential to decrease the threat of visual and auditory overload for people who work in challenging environments, such as astronauts, divers and fighter pilots. An additional advantage is that a...

It is well documented that protective clothing against chemical and biological agents imposes heat stress for the wearer. Performance degradation is generally the result. Several factors are responsible for this performance degradation. The first factor is the increased metabolism to compensate for the additional weight of the clothing and...

Research and development in sports and ergonomics have much in common. In both areas there is a need for adequate tools for measuring, analysing, and enhancing performance, health, and safety, and for equipment that best matches human characteristics and capabilities. In recent years sports research and development in so called field labs...

Due to significant aging trends in coming decades, health care service in western countries is no longer able to satisfy the national care needs. Patients are increasingly expected to perform Self-Care, facing them with severe medical adherence problems. We are exploring the possibilities of personal virtual assistants in the supervision of Self...

The publication of international standards for evaluating working postures and movements, ISO 11226 in 2000 and EN 1005-4 in 2005, may be considered a landmark in prevention and control of pain, fatigue, and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. This paper describes the main characteristics of both standards.

Current helmets and hearing protectors interfere with the sound transmission to the ears and therefore affect the perception and localization of speech and other useful sounds. This is can be a serious drawback especially when the person wearing the protection has to operate in complex, unpredictable environments. A novel electro-acoustic system...

Ideally, specifications for all products should be based on a systematic analysis of what prospective users need to do, and how they can do it most effectively and efficiently. In practice, the design process is disturbed by many 'pragmatic' factors, such as conflicting constraints, interference from management, personnel changes in design teams...

Het SUIT experiment van TNO Human Factors en Dutch Space wordt tijdens de DELTA missie uitgevoerd. Hierbij wordt onderzocht of een speciaal vest, voorzien van kleine trillertjes, kan bijdragen aan een verbeterd gevoel van ruimtelijke oriëntatie bij astronauten. De kansen voor spin-off naar andere sectoren zijn optimaal.

Specialised protective clothing, such as that worn by firefighters, is usually tested only to standards which give requirements for the materials used (e.g. EN469). However,this testing often neglects the effect the manufacturing process of the garment has on the material properties,the effects of clothing design, sizing and fit, as well as the...
