The human operator is, no doubt, the most complex and variable element of a Mechatronics system. On simpler manual control tasks, a linear model may be used to capture the human dynamics, however experiences on human operator response during pursuit manual tracking tasks, show that the dynamics of the human operator appear to depend on the specific task(More)
—This paper proposes a fault diagnosis approach for detection and diagnosis of parametric faults in linear dynamical systems. It is assumed that the system is modeled by an auto-regressive (ARX) model, and a recursive least-squares (RLS) algorithm with variable forgetting factor is used for on-line parameter identification. The fault detection task is done(More)
Traditionally Man-Machine Interfaces (MMI) are concerned with the ergonomic aspects of the operation, often disregarding other aspects on how humans learn and use machines. The explicit use of the operator dynamics characterization for the definition of the Human-in-the-Loop control system may allow an improved performance for manual control systems. The(More)
— The concepts of learning and teaching appear somehow mixed although their use emphasizes who is at the center of the process. Bologna Declaration has put the stress on the " What students do? " paradigm, shifting the center of the process to the student. Such paradigm also supports life long learning objectives. The remote laboratory concept provides a(More)
Most of the mechatronics equipments and gadgets that we all nowadays rely on incorporate some kind of multidimensional human-machine systems. There is an increasing concern for improving the usability, performance, ergonomics and safety of such devices, and ultimately this will lead to the mass-production of next-generation intelligent machines, which will(More)
