New Guide for Assessment of Exoskeleton Users' Attentional Performance

1. Scope

This standard provides guidance on the methods that can be used to assess potential changes in the user's attentional performance associated with exoskeleton use. Changes in attentional performance may affect the user's task performance and could have potential implications for the user's safety and the cognitive fit of the system. As such, it is essential to have a standard assessment procedure and measures that can be used to evaluate these aspects while using an exoskeleton in an industrial setting.


Visual attention


This guide is designed to inform test requesters, experimental designers, and test supervisors about methods that may be used to measure the user's attentional performance while wearing an exoskeleton system. It is specifically intended to help provide guidance on measures that can be used for assessing visual attention, which may have a critical effect on user performance and safety while engaging in workplace demands.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
