Human Factors and Ergonomics Design Handbook offers complete coverage of the latest trends and advances in ergonomics and psychology and lays out practical applications for today's designers. Written by a team of experts, Human Factors and Ergonomics Design Handbook, Third Edition, shows how to maximize functionality while reducing injuries and minimizing the impact on physical and psychological health. The ubiquitous use of smartphones, tablets, and other high-tech equipment is discussed in full detail. New chapters explain medical systems, robotics, handheld devices, cognitive workload, and the motion environment.
Automotive Ergonomics: Driver-Vehicle Interaction explores the challenges in research and development of new vehicles brought about by recent advances in theory and practice.
Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics aims to serve the needs of the human factors and ergonomics researchers, practitioners, and graduate students. Each chapter has a strong theory and scientific base, but is heavily focused on real world applications.
With numerous illustrations, practical background information, and extensive interviews with the designers, "living" and "doing" offer a comprehensive overview of current innovations and trends. Consumers are thereby given the unique chance to decide for themselves, individually, on the best design.
Featuring more than 200 anthropometric drawings, this handbook is filled with all of the essential measurements of the human body and its relationship to the designed environment.
Practical guidelines for the Ergonomic Design of Products and Facilities Youll find: Key Descisions to make at the conceptual design stage; Diagrams, charts and checklists; Data on cognitive skills, sensory capacities, mobility, strength, and dexterity; Tables of Engineering unit conversions and scientific constants; Designs that "fit the user"; Human Body size, reach, strength, reaction time, environmental stress resistance.
Written for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, as well as for practicing professionals, the book combines an emphasis on the empirical research basis of human factors with comprehensive coverage of basic concepts in the field of human factors and ergonomics.
A revised and updated edition of a Dutch classic, the Vademecum Ergonomie (originally published in 1963, translated in 1991 by Kluwer Bedrijfswetenschappen, and subsequently published in 1993 by Taylor & Francis) offers an introduction to workplace ergonomics. Covers basic ergonomics and its social significance; posture and movement; information and operation; environmental factors; work organization; and ergonomic design and acquisition.
This newly updated, single-volume edition of the most respected and widely used guidelines to ergonomics in the workplace, Kodak's Ergonomic Design for People at Work, offers a concise and straightforward presentation of information, data, and how-to guidelines for implementing solutions to human factors and ergonomics problems in industries worldwide.
