Assessing Operator Response to Critical Alarms During Plant Upsets – TU Dublin

Using state-of-the-art technology, the study explore the cognitive factors that impact operator performance during alarm handling and process control.
What will the experiment involve? Testers will be asked to complete a task involving alarm handling and process control simulation while wearing an EEG cap and an eye tracker during the whole task. The experiment will take approximately 2 hours to complete.

  • Gain insight into your own cognitive processes
  • Contribute to research to improve process control and alarm handling
  • Participation certificate (upon request)


  • Must be 18 years or older
  • Must be fluent in English
