DescriptionThis investigation proposes a Task-Design Framework, which describes the relationship between human capabilities, the task design, and their performance. Validating such a framework, however, remains a challenge. With recent advances in wearable technologies, biometric sensors are now widely available, easy to use and fairly unobtrusive. These sensors provide an opportunity to measure and monitor a subset of astronaut health and performance indicators non-invasively. This work is aimed at systematically identifying a process that could be used to validate the task-design framework through a series of experimental task scenarios where task performance is tracked with measures such as speed and accuracy of task execution as well as changes to human capabilities using biometric sensing as an inference for task performance.
