    The chapters in the book come from an international group of authors with diverse backgrounds including ergonomics, psychology, architecture, computer science, engineering, and sociology. Specific topics include biometric systems development, military command and control, cellular phone interface design, methodologies for workplace design, medical device design, cockpit display and decision tool design for pilots, driver visual and cognitive processes, and performance of inspection tasks in manufacturing operations; and extend to human-automation integration in future aviation systems, novel 3-D display technologies for enhancing information analysis, training methods for mental models, approaches to activity analysis, new research-oriented frameworks and paradigms in training, and the use of virtual reality for skill development and assessment. The book is divided into sections covering:

    I. Cultural Differences in Computing Systems Design
    II. Decision Making and Decision Support
    III. Desktop/Mobile Interface Design
    IV. Ergonomics in Design
    V. Ergonomics in Product Design
    VI. Human Factors in Aviation Systems
    VII. Human Factors in Driving
    VIII. Human Factors in Manufacturing
    IX. Human Factors in NextGen Operations
    X. Information Visualization for Situation Awareness
    XI. Mental Models
    XII. Perceptuo-Motor Skills & Psychophysical Assessment
    XIII. Task Analysis
    XIV. Training Technology
    XV. Virtual Reality for Behavior Assessment
    XVI. Virtual Reality for Psychomotor Training

    The implications of all this work include design recommendations for complex systems and commercial products, new procedures for operator training and self-regulation as well as methods for accessibility to systems, and specification of ergonomic interventions at the user. It is expected that this book will be of special value to practitioners involved in design process development, design and prototyping of systems, products and services, as well as training process design for a broad range of applications and markets in various countries.
