The Concept of Future Man-Machine System and the Evaluation Method of Vigilance 910114
We have proposed a human mimetic machine, using electronics control technology, which is quasi-human like an android equipped with volition as a new technical concept for man-machine systems. This machine determines the driver's physiological and psychological conditions and, in response, controls surrounding stimuli, such as sounds and vibrations. In this way, the relationship between the driver and the vehicle is made more human like.
To determine the significance of the human mimetic machine, we have been developing a biofeedback vigilance control system, which maintains an optimum vigilance level during driving by controlling stimuli. In the first stage of the study, we have developed an accurate method to determine vigilance level using multiple regression analysis of electroencephalograms.
