INCLUSIVE Summary of human model methodology to select operator grouped by tasks

The a-priori measurement relates to the user’s given and mostly static characteristics, which will be assessed beforehand and saved for the individual operator. With real-time profiling the operator’s actual strain and emotional level, the system will be able to react to the user’s needs within a few seconds after mental overload was detected. In the longitudinal profile, information about the operator’s experience with regard to his/her task performance will be saved and used for continuous support via structure maps, e.g. during the whole time of employment.

In a first step, requirements will be discussed that are based on earlier results in the project. These persist of requirements of the target users and system requirements that were defined in Deliverable 1.1.

Relating to these requirements, we identifiy the profile parameters containing information about the required characteristics that should be met by the system as defined in D1.1. Furthermore, we develop clusters for each profile type, aiming at grouping target users and adapting the system towards one of the defined clusters. Therefore we either use established clusters or develop reasonable user groups. The respective degree of adaption and teaching will be defined later in the adaption/teaching module, based on findings of the laboratory investigations.

Moreover, we point out possible limitations, due to ethical, social and legal implications, before we provide alternate solution approaches to react to implementation barriers. Finally we give an overview of all user profile parameters and clusters.
