Modelling of operator’s focusing scheme along working hours: Windrowing and cultivating operations
MetadataNäita täielikku nimetuse kirjet
Enhancing productivity and cost reduction are two main targets for any production operation. In the agricultural field; It is the role of researchers to come out with reliable models and make it available to be used in m odern farming management organizations as well as to the rural farmers. When it comes to the Human Machine Interface it is essential to assess the system in term of the Human Cantered Design aspects. This research is focusing on the developing simple model s for the operator’s focusing scheme as a human behaviour inside an off - road vehicle cabin based on the operator’s focusing scheme measuring along working hours using proven and up to date technologies. The results of this research provide the decision mak ers with reliable inputs using proven methodology regarding the change of operator’s focusing scheme along working hours in two agricultural operations “windrowing and cultivating”. Both operations are requiring continuous physical involvement of the opera tor for checking the attached tool and steering of the vehicle in the planned track, which is directly related to the accumulated passive fatigue as a main contributor of resulted data.
