Description

Successful markets are populated with products whic
h actually meet the user expectations well.
A key contribution to determine the proper function
ality of products, systems and environment
design is provided by human factors technologies a
nd services: usability analyses, studies on
human behaviour, research on motivation, advertisin
g and marketing, and security research are
nowadays increasingly applied for the structuring o
f our habitats for the design of shop floors,
web and product design, interaction design, urban a
nd traffic planning, and guidance system
designs. The various applications in this area requ
ire a qualitative and increasingly quantitative
acquisition and interpretation using significant pa
rameters that describe physical and cognitive
human activities. For the underlying human sciences
values on behavioural data, attention,
stress and emotional status are essential to determ
ine the user acceptance of products,
services, user interfaces and guidance systems. The
required progress on specifically
miniaturised, multi-sensory measurement systems and
associated quantitatively driven
interpretation models is so far still missing.
