Psychometric test system for measuring cognitive reaction time

For the assessment of human reaction time, a test environment was developed. This system consists of an embedded device with organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays with push buttons for the combined presentation of visual stimulation and registration of the haptic human reaction. The test leader can define the test sequence with the aid of a graphical user interface (GUI) on a personal computer (PC). The validation of the system was proved by measuring the latency times of the whole system, which are conditioned by the specific hard- and software constellation. Through the investigation of the display’s light radiation by a photodiode and the recorded current consumption, latency times and their variance were specified. In the fastest mode the system can reach an error limit of 60 μs.
