DI Hosting Human Factors for Head-Worn Displays Breakfast Workshop
Design Interactive will be hosting a Human Factors for Head-Worn Displays (HWDs) Breakfast Workshop on Friday, December 1st. The event will bring together stakeholders across virtual, augmented and mixed reality technologies. DI’s Cheif Scientist of the Extended Realities Division, Dr. Cali Fidopiastis, will discuss the current state of the science for conducting human factors evaluations with HWDs, considerations for selecting HWD technologies, and implications for human performance and training effectiveness. Following this, a one hour Q&A/open discussion will occur. Some specific discussion points include:
- Content considerations to match visual capability for virtual, augmented, and mixed reality HWDs
- Cognitive neuroscience approaches to validating HWDs
- User system and interface design aspects necessary for validity, efficacy, and effectiveness
- Evaluation metrics for HWDs such as visual acuity and stereoacuity
- Experimental methodology to assess integrated components of a HWD using psychophysical measures to benchmark and predict user performance
- Approaches for evaluating candidate technologies prior to acquiring hardware, saving time and money
- Example use cases for medical and tactical training
To RSVP, email Luke DeVore at email@example.com.
Who: Researchers, Program Managers, Industry Partners, and Uniformed Personnel with an interest in human factors considerations for HWDs are invited.
