In many games, players communicate with virtual characters. Using the traditional approach of handling dialogues, players often experience the communication as rigid and unnatural. TNO and RANJ explored the BDI approach to create unique virtual characters, each fitted with their individual goals and strategies. The virtual characters initiate...

How can you tell whether someone working or gaming is mentally taxed too high or too low? In collaboration with Noldus IT (Wageningen) and the FC Donders Institute (Nijmegen), TNO designed and conducted an experiment to measure mental load through brain signals. 35 participants performed a computer task that varied in difficulty. Our classifiers...

A decision support tool, called Speed and Route Advisor (SARA), was developed at Schiphol Airport to help air traffic controllers achieve increased accuracy in traffic delivery. Its influence on controller performance, workload, and situation awareness was evaluated in a real-time simulation and in an operational trial. The findings indicate...

This paper presents a Cognitive Task Load (CTL) model designed to keep track of an operator’s mental workload, both quantitatively (amount of workload) and qualitatively (cognitive state). By integrating this model in a (semi-)autonomous robot, robot’s level of automation and user interface can be attuned to the operator’s state (Every second,...

This study explores the feasibility of sensitive machines; that is, machines with empathic abilities, at least to some extent. A signal processing and machine learning pipeline is presented that is used to analyze data from two studies in which 25 Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) patients participated. The feasibility of speech as a stress...

This paper presents a test battery method to investigate (relative) operational upsides and downsides of robot innovations. This method was applied to test the teleoperated Generaal robot and the NIFTi robot that could be operated in manual and semi-automatic mode for navigation and situation sensing. The unit tasks of our test battery proved to...

Dit how-to boek legt uit hoe lokale aanbieders nieuwe elektronische diensten over Fiber-to-the-Home (FttH) netwerken kunnen leveren. FttH-netwerken zijn interessant voor dienstaanbieders omdat ze in de praktijk een aantal mogelijkheden bieden die in andere netwerken, zoals DSL en kabel, (nog) niet beschikbaar zijn. In dit boek gaat het daarbij...

ICT has the potential to enable a low carbon economy, as pointed out by many studies. One example of the energy (and CO2) saving potential of ICT is illustrated in this chapter: how much energy (and emissions) can be saved if the invoicing process is redesigned? Although there is a net positive effect, the way the actual process is implemented...

In this paper we describe the development of a model for measuring consumer trust in certain topics on the basis of social media. Specifically, we propose a model for trust that takes into account both textually expressed sentiment and source authority, and illustrate it on a specific case: the iCloud cloud computing service of Apple and its...
