Ergonomics (or human factors) is defined by the International Ergonomics Association as “the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data, and other methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.” The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) has a special interest in field, and the group hosts regular webinars with industry experts who talk about the design of their products.
On August 14, 2019 at 2 p.m., the HFES will host a webinar titled “Augmented Reality: What It Can and Cannot Do,” which will take an extensive look at the design of Augmented Reality software. Marxent’s Director of Software Design Jeff Cowgill will be among the notable presenters, which also include Kelly Hale of Design Interactive, Inc.; Dr. Paul Havig of the U.S. Air Force; Dr. So Young Kim of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory; and Ken Mayer of Ford Motor Company.
“Augmented Reality: What It Can and Cannot Do” will be moderated by Rebecca Grier. The official description of the webinar is as follows: “Augmented Reality (AR), or the perceptual enhancement of the real world by computer generated information, was once a technology looking for a problem. As hardware has advanced, so has the utility of AR. However, AR can still cause problems if not implemented quickly. The panelists will discuss lessons learned from successful and unsuccessful applications of AR, as well as where they think the technology is going.”
