Conference Paper
Full-text available
The interest in Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) continues to grow worldwide, with over 70 reactor designs in development, one already in operation and 4 more expected to be in operation within the next 5 years. Much of the research focus to date has been on technology development for SMRs, but as the more mature designs progress through licensing pro...
Article
There is increasing interest in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to improve organizational decision-making. However, research indicates that people’s trust in and choice to rely on “AI decision aids” can be tenuous. In the present paper, we connect research on trust in AI with Mayer, Davis, and Schoorman’s (1995) model of organizational trus...

A gaze based interface was used as the basis for a interaction system supporting a remote operator of a ground reconnaissance robot when classifying objects previously identified by a software. Using the gaze point as a cursor, a pre-selection of the object in the sightline is made, allowing the user to effect the symbol via a haptic interface. An...

With the increasing intelligence and power of machines, an intelligent integration of these machines with people, organizations and the environment becomes ever more crucial. This results in a number of tension fields, for both scientists and practitioner: Being too critical or analytical without sufficient synthesis and constructiveness will slow...
Chapter
With the purpose of facilitating a balanced Human Systems Integration of complex vision systems for military use and aid to ensure compliance with the expectations of new systems, a methodology for the integration of tangible VR and simulation was established. The methodology incorporates the requirements of stakeholders and users, which are define...
Chapter
Situational awareness is a crucial aspect for the survivability of combat vehicles and soldiers in the battlefield, as well as for the prevention of fratricide and collateral damage. Optical, radio and acoustic sensors for monitoring the battlefield can significantly increase situational awareness by providing further information to the crew. Howev...

Following the successful digitalisation of tasks within the aviation domain, this development has now also reached road-based vehicles and is quickly progressing in the form of computer-based, assisted and automated driving. As these systems are becoming increasingly more complex and intelligent, design and interaction patterns can be an effective...
Conference Paper
Due to more and more recent technologies, better simulations can be developed, which can create a greater fusion between the real and virtual world and thus, also generate a higher degree of immersion. Higher levels of immersion can provide meaningful and realistic results and faster integration and assessment of new concepts (e.g. design-concepts)...

A common aspect across many of the design concepts for SMRs is the implementation of passive or inherent safety features that require no active controls or operator intervention to avoid accidents. Instead, these designs rely on gravity, natural convection, or resistance to high temperatures to maintain safety. Many SMR design concepts also plan for fully digital control rooms, higher levels of automation and reduced minimum staffing, all of which will in inevitably have an impact on the conduct of operations and on human performance. The main objective of this activity in the Halden HTO programme is to understand and investigate the possible impacts of SMR control room design concepts on human performance.
