Hierarchical task analysis (HTA) is a core ergonomics approach with a pedigree of over 30 years continuous use. At its heart, HTA is based upon a theory of performance and has only three governingExpand
Perspectives on safety culture
Overviewing selected elements from the literature, this paper locates the notion of safety culture within its parent concept of organisational culture. A distinction is drawn between functionalistExpand
What really is going on? Review of situation awareness models for individuals and teams
The concept of situation awareness (SA) is frequently described in the literature. Theoretically, it remains predominantly an individual construct and the majority of the models presented describe SAExpand
Measuring Situation Awareness in complex systems: Comparison of measures study
Abstract Assessing operator situation awareness is a key component of sociotechnical system design and evaluation. This article describes a study that was undertaken in order to compare two differentExpand
Distributed situation awareness in dynamic systems: theoretical development and application of an ergonomics methodology
The purpose of this paper is to propose foundations for a theory of situation awareness based on the analysis of interactions between agents (i.e. both human and non-human) in subsystems. ThisExpand
Takeover Time in Highly Automated Vehicles: Noncritical Transitions to and From Manual Control
We found that drivers take longer to resume control from a highly automated vehicle in noncritical scenarios when under no time pressure compared with that reported in the literature. Expand
Malleable Attentional Resources Theory: A New Explanation for the Effects of Mental Underload on Performance
This paper proposes a new theory to account for the effects of underload on performance. Expand
Effects of adaptive cruise control and highly automated driving on workload and situation awareness: A review of the empirical evidence
Adaptive cruise control (ACC), a driver assistance system that controls longitudinal motion, has been introduced in consumer cars in 1995. A next milestone is highly automated driving (HAD), a systemExpand
Human error taxonomies applied to driving: A generic driver error taxonomy and its implications for intelligent transport systems
Recent research indicates that driver error contributes to up to 75% of all roadway crashes. Despite this, only relatively little is currently known about the types of errors that drivers make and ofExpand
