One component in the successful use of automated, computerized systems is how much people trust these systems to perform effectively. In order to understand the relationship between trust in computerized systems and the use of those systems, we need to be able to measure that trust. Although questionnaires regarding trust have been used in prior studies, these questionnaires were not based on empirically generated scales and did not differentiate between concepts of trust and distrust, or…

The Unexplored Link between Communication and Trust in Aviation Maintenance Practice
A gap has been identified in the study of trust and the exploration of the combined traits of communication and trust in aviation maintenance as aviation researchers have only recently started to study factors not individually, but rather by combining their effects.
Trust in medical technology by patients and healthcare providers in obstetric work systems
Assessment of how patients and care providers make decisions about the trustworthiness of mutually used medical technology in an obstetric work system shows that users with different perspectives of the system have different criteria for developing trust in medical technologies.
Designing for Appropriate Trust in Automated Vehicles
The results show that trust is primarily affected by information from and about the AV, and that the user’s trust in the AV also is affected by aspects relating to different traffic situations, such as perceived task difficulty, perceived risk for oneself and how well the AV conformed to the user's expectations.

Various dimensions of web interface that have the potential to influence trust in e-commerce are identified, based on a survey of the web interfaces of 65 Indian e-Marketplaces.
Guidelines for Trust in Future ATM Systems: Measures
A measure of Air Traffic Control (ATC) trust, named 'SATI' for 'SHAPE ATM Trust Index', is primarily concerned with human trust of ATC computer-assistance tools and other forms of automation support, which are expected to be major components of future Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems.
Guidelines for Trust in Future ATM Systems: A Literature Review
The purpose of this document and its sequels is to provide a set of human factors guidelines for facilitating and fostering human trust in Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems. The guidelines are


Trust in close relationships.
A theoretical model describing interpersonal trust in close relationships is presented. Three dimensions of trust are identified, based on the type of attributions drawn about a partner's motives.
Trust in automation. Part II. Experimental studies of trust and human intervention in a process control simulation.
Two experiments are reported which examined operators' trust in and use of the automation in a simulated supervisory process control task and suggest that operators' subjective ratings of trust and the properties of the automate, can be used to predict and optimize the dynamic allocation of functions in automated systems.

Interpersonal trust is an aspect of close relationships which has been virtually ignored in social scientific research despite its importance as perceived by intimate partners and several family
Trust, self-confidence, and operators' adaptation to automation
This paper examines the relationship between trust in automatic controllers, self-confidence in manual control abilities, and the use of automatic controllers in operating a simulated semi-automatic pasteurization plant and found trust, combined with self- confidence, predicted the operators' allocation strategy.
