Human Factors and Usability Lab

Capturing human-machine interaction can be a challenging task. Multiple forms of data can be collected, from user actions on the computer and eye movements to physiological and simulator data. 

Gaming researchers, for instance, enjoy the flexibility of The Observer XT and record facial expressions, video, audio, and physiological data in sync. Human factors researchers use Viso and The Observer XT to integrate simulator data with video recordings.

Simulation and Training Lab

Simulation is an increasingly popular training and feedback method in which real-life circumstances are simulated for learners to practice tasks and processes using models or virtual reality. Data on the performance of the learners and feedback from observers, peers, actor-patients, or audio/video tools helps them to improve their skills. 

Together with you, Noldus designs the perfect training and simulation facility, each of which are customized according to the specific needs of the researchers.
