This paper presents a preliminary study on the influences on an operator’s maneuver by the ultrasound signal. The lap time of driving computer video game course, that is, the performance index of operation, is measured for each subject with or without ultrasound signal exposure. Results show that the operational characteristics of several subjects are changed by the ultrasound environment. Subjects tend to concentrate on handling the driving and decreasing an attention to check the over speed driving during ultrasound exposure. We discuss the relationship between the ultrasound signal and the operator’s behavior.
