Description

An examination of the various types of human-modeled technology, Advances in Applied Human Modeling and Simulation not only covers the type of models available, but how they can be applied to solve specific problems. These models provide a representation of some human aspects that can be inserted into simulations or virtual environments and facilitate prediction of safety, satisfaction, usability, performance, and sustainability.





Topics include:







  • Anthropometry and human functional data


  • Biomechanics, occupational safety, comfort and discomfort


  • Biometric authentications


  • Driving safety and human performance


  • Enhancing human capabilities through aids or training


  • Fuzzy systems and neural computing


  • Human behavior and risk assessment modeling


  • Integrating software with humans and systems


  • International cooperation in education and engineering research


  • Intelligent agents in decision training


  • Intelligent data and text mining


  • Machine learning and human factors


  • Modeling physical aspects of work


  • Monitoring systems and human decision


  • Psychophysiological indicators of emotion


  • Resilience engineering and human reliability


  • Scenario-based performance in distributed enterprises


  • Special populations


  • Sustainability, earth sciences and engineering


  • System-of-systems architecting and engineering


  • Verification and validation


  • Virtual interactive design and assessment




The math and science provides a foundation for visualizations that can facilitate decision making by technical experts, management or those responsible for public policy. In considering a systems perspective and decisions that affect performance, these models provide opportunities for an expanded role of engineers and HF/E specialist
