It is important to gain insights into the mental states of operators in control rooms and other complex systems. Cognitive load and alertness influence performance and can lead to human errors, which can have serious consequences. Warning lights illuminate if there is a mechanical error, but not if one of the operators is not functioning properly. Likewise, in educational settings, measuring the mental states of students can provide the insights needed to improve online learning.
