Project Details


Successful markets are populated with products whic h actually meet the user expectations well. A key contribution to determine the proper function ality of products, systems and environment design is provided by human factors technologies a nd services: usability analyses, studies on human behaviour, research on motivation, advertisin g and marketing, and security research are nowadays increasingly applied for the structuring o f our habitats for the design of shop floors, web and product design, interaction design, urban a nd traffic planning, and guidance system designs. The various applications in this area requ ire a qualitative and increasingly quantitative acquisition and interpretation using significant pa rameters that describe physical and cognitive human activities. For the underlying human sciences values on behavioural data, attention, stress and emotional status are essential to determ ine the user acceptance of products, services, user interfaces and guidance systems. The required progress on specifically miniaturised, multi-sensory measurement systems and associated quantitatively driven interpretation models is so far still missing.
