Situational Awareness WG Survey Results – Q1 2013. Survey Preamble.
The scope of the SA (Situation Awareness) working group is to analyze the effectiveness of information delivery systems in mining equipment and develop a unified display design, to mitigate against the proliferation of screens within equipment cabs. This working group comprises a variety of stakeholders representing a cross-section of relevant mining and mining-related organizations. This stakeholder network will help guide the direction of the working group towards a common, mutually beneficial end. For now, the focus is on shovel displays; however it should be noted that this work is expected to form the foundation for similar work with other equipment in the future. The following survey aims to collect input from stakeholders for the direction of next steps in the Common User Interface project and to create a strategy for greater outreach to and inclusion of industry in the project. We appreciate your taking the time to complete the survey. In the interest of your time, please provide a brief, 2-3 line response to questions, or feel free to use bulleted lists, etc, in your answers.
