Moving imagery from a static scene was recorded with an un-cooled thermal imager at nine different angular velocities ranging from 0 (static) to 1 pixel/frame (3.75 deg/s) using a tilted rotating mirror. The scene contained a thermal acuity test chart with triangular test patterns based on the Triangle Orientation Discrimination (TOD) test...

An international group consisting of several NATO nations participated in a trial in which urban camouflage was developed and compared. First, photographs were taken in and around a small town (arid climate). Next, the different groups derived urban camouflage patterns from these photographs. We applied our method for deriving a camouflage...

Reality can be viewed from several perspectives or disciplines. Due to their background, training and education, soldiers developed a military perspective which is not solely restricted to kinetic activities. In current missions, military personnel is confronted with a reality in which other perspectives play important roles, such as social...

Motivation - A situation map that shows the overview of a disaster situation serves as a valuable tool for disaster response teams. It helps them orientate their location and make disaster response decisions. It is, however, a quite complicated task to rapidly generate a comprehensive situation map of a disaster area. In this paper, we report on...

A simulator study was performed to establish the effects of motorway environment complexity on driver distraction and workload. In this study environment complexity refers to the visual complexity of static objects on or next to the road and in its vicinity (e.g. traffic signs, buildings, advertisements…). It does not include traffic density or...

Recent research shows that Virtual Reality (VR) exposure or bio-neuro feedback can help professionals to cope with possibly traumatic events. This paper presents a neuro-bio VR system that combines both methods in order to further improve the prevention and therapy of trauma-related disorders. This system can harmonize the VR exposure to user's...

From literature and through common experience it is known that stimulation of the tactile (touch) sense or auditory (hearing) sense can be used to improve people's health and well-being. For example, to make people relax, feel better, sleep better or feel comforted. In this position paper we propose the concept of combined auditory-tactile...

In this paper it is explored whether personalisation of an existing computational model of attention can increase the model's validity. Computational models of attention are for instance applied in attention allocation support systems and can benefit from this increased validity. Personalisation is done by tuning the model's parameters during a...

Motivation – Complex design specifications must be partitioned in manageable pieces to be able to evaluate them in separate experiments. No methodology exists yet to deal with this task. Research approach – Practical experience in Situated Cognitive Engineering and the Mission Execution Crew Assistant is combined with a theoretical perspective...

In The Netherlands, veal carcasses are classified on color, conformation and fatness. In the past 20 years, major efforts have been put into the development of a reliable color classification system. Initially, the color of the musculus rectus abdominis was visually matched to a 10-point scale. Later on, the visual classification was replaced by...

Motivation - It is becoming necessary to seriously consider self-management in the treatment of chronically ill patients. A number of self-management applications have already been developed, but an explicit theoretical model is lacking. The PERISCOPE-project aims to provide (1) a conceptual framework for self-management systems aimed at...

This paper presents the development of a cognitive model of cognitive lockup: the tendency of humans to deal with disturbances sequentially, possibly overseeing crucial data from unattended resources so that serious task failures can appear—e.g., in a cockpit or control centre. The proposed model should support the design and evaluation of user...

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) may benefit from 'self care' solutions which use social robotics principles. Specifically, the authors propose to use robots in various ways to help such children with the acquisition and training of important pragmatic social behaviors, for example greetings. In order to create such a learning...

Many countries face pressure on their health care systems. To alleviate this pressure, 'self care' and 'self monitoring' are often stimulated with the use of new assistive technologies. Social robotics is a research area where robotic technology is optimized for various social functions. One of these functions is self care assistance. To foster...

The development and tuning of flight simulator motion filters relies on understanding human motion perception and its limitations. Of particular interest to flight simulation is the study of visual-inertial coherence zones. Coherence zones refer to combinations of visual and inertial cues that, although not being physically coherent, still...
