A Methodology for Modeling the Influence of Construction Machinery Operators on Productivity and Fuel Consumption
2009 (English)In: Proceedings from the Human-Computer Interaction HCI International 2009, San Diego (CA), USA: Digital Human Modeling, Berlin / Heidelberg: Springer , 2009, 614-623 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper is concerned with modeling the actions of a human operator of construction machinery and integrating this operator model into a large, complex simulation model of the complete machine and its environment. Because human operators to a large degree affect how the machine is run, adaptive operator models are a necessity when the simulation goal is quantification and optimization of productivity and energy efficiency.
Interview studies and test series have been performed to determine how professionals operate wheel loaders. Two models using different approaches were realized and integrated into a multi-domain model for dynamic simulation. The results are satisfactory and the methodology is easily usable for other, similar situations.
