In engineering the human is considered as one of the system elements. In most studies, his/her model remains unchanged due to the external factors. The present study shows that a relation between the mental stress and human dynamics cannot be neglected. The dynamic characteristics of the operator model change due to external stimuli, i.e., mental stress. The aim of this study was to present identification of a mathematical human model and measurement methodology of the mental stress level. To determine the level of human response to external stimuli, the electrocardiography (ECG) and electromyography (EMG) methods were applied. The results showed difference in model parameters that cannot be neglected during the modeling of the human operator. The present study points to the need of developing simplified human models, taking into account external stimuli that have direct impact on his/her effectiveness. Some interdisplinary investigation provide may benefits combining part of the automation and ergonomics research areas.
