This manuscript describes an experimental study aimed at determining the existence and the correlation between physiological human performance within the field of heavy goods vehicles and absorbed whole-body vibrations. The reaction times obtained have been compared to those published in open literature and interesting discrepancies and findings have been obtained; the discrepancies are due to the fact that a quasi mental reaction time is measured through a non invasive computerized human interface, which has been adopted for minimizing the participation of external factors. The experiments, carried out in a controlled environment through accurately described conditions, are, verifiable for future comparisons; relevant conclusions are finally extracted.
