Ergonomics and Usability Laboratory
The University’s Ergonomics and Usability Laboratory can record eye movements and measure physiological stress variables. Instrumentation is available to analyze working conditions (lighting, sound pressures, and climate) during ergonomic studies, there is technology and software for video analyses for usability studies, and computer-aided methods are applied to time studies and task analyses.
