Research Topics

The Ergonomics and Human Factors Unit researches a wide range of subjects related to human factors and ergonomics. Most of the research is psychophysical (studies on human participants) and is conducted in the IIPDM labs. The labs consist of many well-equipped experiment rooms and diverse state-of-the-art technical equipment (eye-movement measurement devices, a variety of stereoscopic displays, a driving simulator, and other psychophysiological devices). A team of computer programmers and technical experts help develop the experiments.
