Cognitive Aspects in Control Rooms

Research output: Chapter in Book/ReportChapter


The level of performance of a control console operator is associated with the speed of data processing, so that the contextual reconstruction of data, whether collaborative or individual, depends on aspects such as knowledge of the actual and effective technical operation, knowledge of the functional and operational his-tory of the process units to be controlled; this is closely related to the physical, biomechanical and physiological availability. this study approaches the physio-logical aspects in two elements considering their relationship with neurological aspects that may affect the monitoring and control tasks. it also examines the rela-tionship between professional experience and cognitive abilities bringing closer to the understanding of specific aspects of anticipation and their relationship with the elaboration of a knowledge base.
