376-1177-00LHuman Factors I3 KP2VM. Menozzi Jäckli, R. Huang, M. Siegrist
KurzbeschreibungStrategies of human-system-interaction, individual needs, physical & mental abilities, and system properties are key factors affecting the quality and performance in interaction processes. In the lecture, factors are investigated by basic scientific approaches. Discussed topics are important for optimizing people's health, well-being, and satisfaction as well as the overall system performance.
LernzielThe goal of the lecture is to empower students in better understanding the applied theories, principles, and methods in various applications. Students are expected to learn about how to enable an efficient and qualitatively high standing interaction between human and the environment, considering costs, benefits, health, and safety as well. Thus, an ergonomic design and evaluation process of products, tasks, and environments may be promoted in different disciplines. The goal is achieved in addressing a broad variety of topics and embedding the discussion in macroscopic factors such as the behavior of consumers and objectives of economy.

376-1179-00LApplications of Cybernetics in Ergonomics1 KP1UM. Menozzi Jäckli, Y.‑Y. Hedinger Huang, R. Huang
KurzbeschreibungCybernetics systems have been studied and applied in various research fields, such as for applications in ergonomics. Topics discussed in this lecture (man-machine-interaction, performance in multi-modal interactions, quantification in gestalt principles for the use in product development, information processing) are deepened with exercises conducted at our labs.
LernzielTo learn and practice cybernetics principles in interface designs and product development.
Inhalt- Fitt's law applied in manipulation tasks
- Hick-Hyman law applied in design of the driver assistance systems - Vigilance applied in quality inspection
- Accommodation/vergence crosslink function
- Cross-link models in neurobiology- the ocular motor control system
- Human performance in optimization of production lines
