Description: Historical human factors research and earlier industrial engineering studies focused on human perception, such as vision and audition, and motor-control capabilities in information processing and manual handling tasks. This work was conducted to provide a basis for basic human-machine interface and tool design, primarily because of a dearth of knowledge on human performance capabilities in industrial systems as well as a lack of methods for measuring and assessing higher-level aspects of cognition. Simulator-based studies can be an effective and efficient means to develop a deeper understanding of human cognitive performance in interacting with machine systems under normal and critical operating conditions. There are three main objectives of using high-fidelity simulators for human factors studies: 1. empirically assessing the impact of advanced technologies on human performance in cognitive tasks, 2. identifying underlying user, task and environmental factors in complex human-machine system performance, and 3. testing hypotheses on constructs of human information processing.
