Charles River Analytics Inc., developer of intelligent systems solutions, recently worked with NASA to assess astronaut workload and performance during the testing and evaluation of new NASA systems. We used the measurements from our CAPT PICARD system to determine how best to display health and status on the Orion space vehicle.
NASA is continually developing new technologies to improve astronaut effectiveness. These technologies risk overloading astronauts’ cognitive capacities, degrading performance. Our system for Cognitive Assessment and Prediction to Promote Individualized Capability Augmentation and Reduce Decrement (CAPT PICARD) supports testing and engineering, allowing engineers to quantitatively and continuously evaluate the cognitive demands of new tools and systems, as well as how they affect task performance.
CAPT PICARD is built on Sherlock™, our open and extensible software and hardware platform that provides a unified, end-to-end solution. With Sherlock, you can rapidly prototype applications to collect, analyze, visualize, and reason about human physiological, neurological, and behavioral data.
Conducting workload assessment during developmental testing of a new system means you can identify features and designs that result in high workload early in the process when redesigns are more feasible and less costly. The R&D we conducted under CAPT PICARD and other cognitive workload assessment projects can also measure the training effectiveness of realistic training simulations.
