The Human-in-Mind Engineering Research (HiMER) lab aims to design, implement, and evaluate future interactive systems from the human factors perspective. We focus on intelligent human interactive systems to bridge the critical communication gap between users and system designers. The goal of our research is to improve human safety and system efficiency. The Lab develops human performance models based on eye and motion tracking data and cognitive processing theories. The Lab also develops experimental prototypes and tools to evaluate the usability and effectiveness of the human interactive systems. Specific application areas include augmented and virtual reality, human-robot interaction, transportation safety, multimodal display, and data visualization.
