Computer-aided Control of Sensorimotor Skills Development in Operators of Manufacturing Installations

Rustam Fayzrakhmanov, Ivan Polevshchikov, Anatoliy Polyakov

Abstract: In this paper we introduce a novel model and method to increase the effectiveness of training operators of manufacturing installations. The proposed mathematical model describes main aspects of the process of training and development of sensorimotor skills. In contrast to existing models, our mathematical model incorporates dynamic characteristics of the skill development process and exponential learning curves which are used in assessing the performance of motor actions and development of control actions. We implemented the model and method as a component of our AnyCrane training simulator for crane operators. AnyCrane training simulator is a framework for realistic simulation of environment in ports, cranes, personal, physics and different technological processes. Our case study demonstrated effectiveness of the approach presented in this paper. The time necessary for moving a cargo decreased by 19%, the precision of load-unload operations increased by 30%, and the smoothness of crane turning has been increased by 36%.
