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...

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...

In a laboratory study, the annoyance caused by the passby sounds from a magnetic levitation (maglev) train was investigated. The listeners were presented with various sound fragments. The task of the listeners was to respond after each presentation to the question: "How annoying would you find the sound in the preceding period if you were...

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.

This paper reports on the evaluation of the speech output component of a dialogue system that enables the control of different home appliances via speech. It was simulated that participants called the system from the car and listened to feedback messages from the system. Their task was to judgethe quality of the system’s output while performing...

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...

As a test on auditory guidance, participants tried to .nd refuge and safety in a road tunnel in dense smoke with sound beacons over the escape exits. The beacons emitted a 'shhussing' noise with a 5-Hz pulse frequency. Three groups participated, 32 or 33 participants per group, the first with minimal instruction (sound not mentioned), the second...

The human operator is a crucial component of complex modern systems. The complexity of these systems, the rapid tempo of contemporary military operations and reduced staffing all contribute to the high cognitive demands experienced by military personnel. Unfortunately, these systems do not account for the functional state of the human operator....

There is a growing interest in Human Behavior models for training purposes. The reason for this is twofold: Firstly, the cost of training will drop by using cognitive agents as team members or adversaries, because the number of human participants will decrease. Secondly, cognitive agents can enhance training effectiveness. Therefore a new...

We examined to what extent body tilt may augment the perception of visually simulated linear self acceleration. Fourteen subjects judged visual motion profiles of fore-aft motion at four different frequencies between 0.04-0.33 Hz, and at three different acceleration amplitudes (0.44, 0.88 and 1.76 m/s2). Simultaneously, subjects were tilted...

Safety and survivability are among the hardest to interpret concepts in the military. The difficulty is that virtually any military activity reflects on safety. The most productive way to improve safety, highly valued by a peacekeeping nation, is not easily identified. In a top down approach, we consider phases in a conflict, topics in each...
