Observation labs

An observation lab allows researchers to observe test participants unobtrusively, in an environment similar to test participant’s natural surroundings. We help you build the right solution for infant behavior studies, communication studies, market research, social psychology, and consumer science, for example.

With a Noldus observation lab, comparing across sessions and quantifying data is very straightforward. Some phenomena can be difficult to study in a lab; for example, habits during a family dinner. In those cases, you can achieve the best results with live and on-site observation, using our compact portable observations labs.

 
 


Human factors and usability labs

Noldus experts built a large number of human factors, usability testing, and customer experience centers all over the world. 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. 

Our labs use N-Linx, the new standard protocol for automatically integrating systems and tying data streams together. With it, get complete insights into the relationships between experimental conditions, facial expressions, physiological responses, and more. With a Noldus Lab, comparing across sessions and quantifying behavior is very straightforward.

Customer quote

“The integration of FaceReader, The Observer XT, and psychophysiological data collection makes research programs possible at locations and within timetables that increase opportunity, quality, and efficiency.”

Dr. C. Barton|Davidson College, USA

 


Simulation labs

Many companies and universities worldwide, such as TNO, Boeing, and Delft University of Technology, have turned to Noldus tools and solutions for human-factors research in aviation and automotive fields. Our labs aid in evaluating behavior-related outcomes by using user-friendly interfaces and tools. 

These labs are used worldwide for measuring situational awareness and fatigue, driver behavior, and performance. Tools such as The Observer XT, Viso, FaceReader, and DriveLab are integrated in these labs and allow you to combine behavioral data and video with physiological signals, emotion data, eye tracking, and sensor readings from a flight simulator.
