Mental workload is useful for evaluating performance of a ship's navigator: a captain, a duty officer, and a pilot. The heart rate variability (R-R interval), the nasal temperature and the salivary amylase predict well based on pre-experiments; however, most of the research tests a professional's skill. The evaluation does not test a cadet's skill yet. In(More)
— Mental workload is useful to evaluate performance of ship bridge teammates: a captain, a duty officer, a helmsman, and a pilot. The physiological indices, heart rate variability and nasal temperature, are good indices of the mental workload found in ship handling; however, it is best if we get response and evaluation results quickly on the spot.

We describe the relationship between a navigator's aptitude and the body's center of gravity and/or heart rate variability while using a ship's bridge simulator. Navigator aptitude relates directly to kansei (the sense for ship handling/common sense) because his understanding of what is right or wrong for the ship affects his decisions. Common sense is(More)
