[Title] Multi-task Performance in Processing Four-choice Spatial Stimulus-Response (S-R) Mappings: Implications for Multimodal Human-Machine Interface Design
Advancement in technology development enables more complex interface design. Increased complexity requires a greater number and a variety of signals and control devices, leading to rising interests in multimodal information processing and multi-task performance in different work environments. In reducing visual workload in complex systems, for information and for warning displays, it is increasingly common to use auditory signals in addition to visual signals for better multi-task time-sharing. The study of spatial compatibility is of crucial importance in the design of effective, reliable and safe human-machine systems. This presentation will present a study which aims to Investigate performance and response preferences for processing four-choice spatial stimulus-response mappings involving multi-sensory signals, and the possibility of providing different controls for the improvement of designs resulting in effective multimodal human-machine interfaces for ensuring reliable and safe performance of human operators.
Dr. Alan H.S. Chan obtained his BSc, MPhil, and PhD from the University of Hong Kong. He has a wide range of research interests in human factors, work design, and occupational safety and health. He has been contributing to his profession and was elected as a Fellow of International Ergonomics Association, Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors, Institution of Engineering and Technology, Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, and the Hong Kong Ergonomics Society. Dr Chan is a Chartered Engineer (UK) and Chartered Ergonomist & Human Factors Specialist (UK). Dr Chan was the President of Institute of Industrial Engineers (HK) for 96/97 and twice the President of the Hong Kong Ergonomics Society (03-05, 09-11). He was the Region Vice President of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (01-03), and Hong Kong Representative for the International Ergonomics Association (02-05, 09-11). He was appointed by the Hong Kong Government as the Chairman of Occupational Safety and Health Council in 2017 and 2019. Dr Chan is the Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics, an Associate Editor of International Journal of Human Factors and Ergonomics in Manufacturing and Service Industries, and is now serving the editorial board of Ergonomics. Dr. Chan has published close to 200 refereed papers in SCI journals in human factors covering work design, safety and health, and human-machine interfaces to promote the ergonomics profession and practice internationally. He has authored many important publications on diverse topics such as driving performance and visual attention, visual inspection programs, control and display arrangements, design of auditory and visual signals, redesign of safety signs, analysis of road accidents, safety and ergonomics evaluations, and risk perceptions and industrial safety of construction workers. He has also published more than 50 book chapters and technical reports, two book reviews and one book on the expertise of human factors.
