Abstract:

In consistent with the growing research activities regarding the Farm 4.0 concept, it is valuable to consider each possible chance of enhancement which is expected to contribute positively to the productivity and the safety of planned operations. Human centred design concept is becoming essential for the multitasking vehicles market, which promotes the research experiments aiming to understand the human behaviour inside the vehicle cabins to proceed with upgrading the design, planning and production procedures based on validated inputs leading to introducing reliable solutions for more productive and safety conduct of operations. The accurate and deep analysis of the operator behaviour inside the cabin will lead to a better understanding for the problems and issues need to be resolved in new designs in addition to providing the production planning (i.e. manpower planning and working shift period) with the necessary data to ensure achieving the maximum efficiency and effectiveness. In this research, the operator’s glance behaviour inside the tractor cabin is studied during the harvesting operation to develop a model for the change of operator’s focusing scheme along working hours.

Abstract:

Enhancing productivity and cost reduction are two main targets for any production operation. In the agricultural field; It is the role of researchers to come out with reliable models and make it available to be used in modern farming management organizations as well as to the rural farmers. When it comes to the Human Machine Interface it is essential to assess the system in term of the Human Cantered Design aspects. This research is focusing on the developing simple models for the operator’s focusing scheme as a human behaviour inside an off-road vehicle cabin based on the operator’s focusing scheme measuring along working hours using proven and up to date technologies. The results of this research provide the decision makers with reliable inputs using proven methodology regarding the change of operator’s focusing scheme along working hours in two agricultural operations ‘windrowing and cultivating’. Both operations are requiring continuous physical involvement of the operator for checking the attached tool and steering of the vehicle in the planned track, which is directly related to the accumulated passive fatigue as a main contributor of resulted data.
