Abstract : An experiment is described in which operators performed a tracking task whose difficulty was varied on two dimensions, bandwidth and order of control. RMS error was measured and subjective judgement of workload obtained on a 10-point scale. Using rms error as a measure of subjective effort, the workload was successfully predicted using fuzzy measures of bandwidth, order of control and effort. (Author)
