Next week the 7th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics will kick off. It is always great to use the summer season to meet other researchers, walk along the poster boards, discuss and exchange ideas about new applications, and view the latest tools and solutions for research. AHFE facilitates it all: keynote presentation, parallel sessions, demonstration and poster sessions, tutorials, exhibitions, and meetings of special interest groups.
3 reasons to join us at the AHFE meeting in Florida
Here is why you should attend:
AHFE is to be held at Walt Disney World® Swan and Dolphin Hotel, near Orlando, Florida, USA July 27-31, 2016. Need I say more? There is really no reason why you shouldn’t extend your visit after the AHFE conference. You can explore exciting attractions, enchanting international pavilions, watch award-winning fireworks and join seasonal special events.
DriveLab - this new tool helps researchers understand driver behavior and the influence of support systems on behavior and performance. It furthermore helps vehicle and electronics developers in testing how their products are being used and what the effect of these products will be on driving behavior, providing them with valuable information for further improving their designs.
Check out the new solution developed by Noldus in collaboration with our partners Green Dino, Smart Eye, Delft University of Technology, TNO, TomTom, and HAN University of Applied Sciences. Two of the partners are exhibiting: join Smart Eye in booth 105 and Noldus in booth 204.
3) Delft University
Would you like to learn more about simulator-based testing? Check out poster D22 by Joost de Winter from Delft University of Technology and Jorrit Kuipers from Delft University of Technology and Green Dino to learn more about the relationship between years of licensure and driving style. The poster demonstration is scheduled for Friday, July 29, from 13:30 to 15:30 in the Atlantic Hall.
Another poster presented in the same hall, same time, is “Towards a real-time driver workload estimator: An on-the-road study: by P. Van Leeuwen, R. Landman, L. Buning, T. Heffelaar, J. Hogema, J. van Hemert, J. de Winter and R. Happee, The Netherlands.
These two posters might give you exactly the information you need to compare simulator-based testing with on-the-road testing.
Will we meet you there?
