An experiment was carried out to estimate the effect of sound feedback on the work of a plant operator. Eight students of computer science operated a process simulation program of an assembly line with computer numeric controlled (CNC) robots. Relevant information of disturbances and machine breakdowns was given only in a visual (test condition 1), and in(More)
CubETH is a project to evaluate and demonstrate possibilities of low-cost GNSS receivers on a nano-satellite by following the Cubesat standard. The development of this new Swiss cubesat mission is underway at the Swiss Polytechnical Schools, launch is planned for 2016. Scientific goal are: precise orbit determination and estimate of satellite attitude based(More)
BACKGROUND A simulator of the respiratory system which includes the pleural space is currently lacking. However, such mechanical models are essential to develop and test new medical devices regulating the pressure in the pleural space. OBJECTIVE It was the aim of this study to develop a model which mimics the pleural space. The device should be able to(More)
Two experiments were carried out to estimate the effect of sound feedback: (1) operating an assembly line simulator (Experiment-A with sound feedback of hidden events), and (2) queries in database search (Experiment-B with sound feedback of the search result quality). Experiment-A: Relevant information of hidden events (e.g., disturbances and machine break(More)
