Sample text

7. Skin conductivity value after warning to stick to time (test persons without failures) In a comparison of the statements of the questionnaires on stress perception with the measured skin conductivity levels an interesting fact could be observed. Test persons who stated a “very low” and “low” stress perception during the experiment showed an increase (in percent) in the skin conductivity value of 200% (Fig. 8). This is a clear indicator that neither group subjectively experienced a proven strain when working with technology.

User-friendly communication, which overcomes spatial distances and language barriers and which links connects different generations with each other, should be promoted particularly. User Oriented. Products and services go over to being determined by the ideas and individual wishes of the customers and to being strongly user-centred in future instead of being manufacturer-oriented. Unique. ICT will also transform the society from uniformity and standardization to a society, which is based on uniqueness, creativity and new social values.

4. Skin conductivity level after F1 In Figure 5 it becomes obvious that after the second error event a further reaction to the disappearance of the text could be ascertained by measuring the skin conductivity levels. It is important to notice here that the skin conductivity value after the first error did not go back to the starting level and therefore represents a further increase compared to the increased levels. Consequently a psychic strain is to be assumed. Fig. 5. Skin conductivity value after F2 An additional increase of the skin conductivity value could be measured in the test persons with failures under additional time pressure (Fig.
