Abstract

The current paper provided a tutorial of the integration of mathematical models in human performance modeling. It introduced the unique features of mathematical modeling in human performance, and the steps in mathematical model integration, including how the literature of models was reviewed, how a research gap was identified, and how a mathematical model was developed and integrated based on existing models, and how a model was validated via an experimental study. A case study was presented by following each step to illustrate the integration of several existing models to derive a new model of drivers' braking performance in warning response with its integration with the existing mathematical models of driver speed control in normal situations and the model of humans' warning response time. This is the first tutorial work that provided a detailed explanation of the steps in mathematical model integration with a case study in human performance modeling. It could be used as guidance for human factors professionals to learn the mathematical modeling approaches and will benefit the field of human performance modeling.
