Transactions on Human Machine Systems


The scope of the IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems includes the field of human-machine systems. It covers human systems and human organizational interactions including cognitive ergonomics, system test and evaluation, and human information processing concerns in systems and organizations.

IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems was launched on January 1, 2013 to replace the human-machine systems sections of IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics.

A review of techniques to improve distorted speech is presented, noting the strengths and weaknesses of common methods. Speech signals are discussed from the point of view of which features should be preserved to retain both naturalness and intelligibility. Enhancement methods range from classical spectral subtraction and Wiener filtering to...

To determine the most effective interventions for poststroke patients, it is imperative to monitor the recovery process. Robotic exoskeletons' built-in sensing capabilities enable accurate kinematic measurement with no additional setup time. Although position sensors used in exoskeletons are accurate, a mismatch between the robot's and the human's joints can lead...

People's acceptance and trust in robots are a direct consequence of people's ability to infer and predict the robot's behavior. However, there is no clear consensus on how the legibility of a robot's behavior and explanations should be assessed. In this work, the construct of the Theory of Mind (i.e.,...

Artificial intelligence has a plethora of applications in the realm of biomedical sciences, such as pattern recognition, diagnosis of disease, human–machine interaction, medical image processing, robotic limbs, or exoskeletons. Robotic limbs, or exoskeletons, are widely employed to assist with lower limb movement. To increase the exoskeleton's flexibility in the lower...

In the field of dynamic scheduling, workers and scheduling models (SMs) play a crucial role in decision-making. Workers are able to help SM training by sample labeling, thereby enhancing the decision-making ability of SMs. However, existing supervised learning methods require a large number of labeled samples to train SMs, which...
