Towards the implementation of a multimedia simulation system for improving error diagnostic skills in mentally disabled subjects
The paper focuses on a research aimed at improving training of these people and proposes a classification frame to study hazards in human-machine interaction. This classification represents the starting point for developing a simulation device for improving current training techniques. This classification frame, named HI-SMITH (Human Interaction with Smith MachInery Troubles Hunter), allows to satisfy cause-effect relations on the basis of erroneous actions performed by subjects when working (task development). The proposed classification covers a variety of categories enabling us to describe their peculiarities, and identifies a new approach, which is human-factor orientated, to the disabled-machine interaction.
