Analysis of Human Performance as a Measure of Mental Fatigue
In our daily life, we often have the feeling of being exhausted due to mental or physical work, and a sense of performance degradation in the execution of simple tasks. The maximum capacity of operation and performance of an individual, whether physical or mental, usually also decreases gradually as the day progresses. The loss of these resources is linked to the onset of fatigue, which is particularly noticeable in long and demanding tasks or repetitive jobs. However, good management of the working time and effort invested in each task, as well as the effect of breaks at work, can result in better performance and better mental health, delaying the effects of fatigue. This paper details a non-invasive approach on the monitoring of fatigue of a human being, based on the analysis of the performance of his interaction with the computer.
