Abstract:

The Multi-Attribute Task Battery MATB has been a keystone for research investigating workload, trust in automation, and other cognitive research since its inception in the early 1990s. To facilitate continued use in research today, the United States Air Force took steps to ensure that the task would continue to remain relevant, developing its own version, AFMATB. This version preserves all of the features and appearance of the original, in addition to implementing new features aimed at aiding the researcher AFMATB includes utilities to customize task parameters and generate scripts in an automated fashion, as well as a detailed performance log at the end of every run.
