Overview

In this course, students gain skills and expertise in the field of human factors. First the theoretical groundwork (human perception and performance, design principles, and trust in automation) is laid and participants gain first practical insights in complex sociotechnical systems. Afterwards, participants team up to put the theoretical foundation into the real world, examining typical challenges in human-automation interaction. The aim is to accomplish a holistic research process from the development of the research question to the presentation of the results. Thereby, the investigated technologies can vary broadly (e.g. humanoid robots, mobile applications, navigation devices, or websites).

Learning goals:

  • Fundamental knowledge about human information processing and action selection, as well as accompanying limitations
  • Ability and common methods to analyze and optimize typical human factors problems
  • Understanding and applying evaluation methods for human- machine-interaction in the context of user-centered design
