Human Factor Laboratory
Designing human-centric systems to support safe transportation networks
The study of human factors involves the identification of certain factors in human nature to ensure a system functioning safely and effectively and the use of the research findings in designing systems. Our laboratory focuses on studying the design of human machine interface (HMI), or systems to facilitate communication between humans and systems. Moreover, we are eyeing research related to electric vehicles.
