Vehicle accelerations may lead to involuntary limb motions. These motions can result into involuntary control inputs when performing a manual control task. This phenomenon is called biodynamic feedthrough (BDFT). This paper aims to show that task interpretation plays an important role in the occurrence of BDFT. Results of an experiment are presented, in which biodynamic feedthrough was measured during three different control tasks. Each control task required the human operator to adapt his/her neuromuscular settings. The results show that the level of biodynamic feedthrough depends on the task the human operator is performing. From further analysis, it can be observed that the experiment results are in good agreement with BDFT measurements found in literature. The comparison confirms that the task interpretation plays an important role in BDFT which cannot be ignored when attempting to understand or mitigate BDFT in practical situations.
