Successful interaction with products, tools and technologies depends on usable designs and accommodating the needs of potential users without requiring costly training. In this context, this book is concerned with emerging ergonomics in design concepts, theories and applications of human factors knowledge focusing on the discovery, design and understanding of human interaction and usability issues with products and systems for their improvement. This book will be of special value to a large variety of professionals, researchers and students in the broad field of human modeling and performance who are interested in feedback of devices’ interfaces (visual and haptic), user-centered design, and design for special populations, particularly the elderly. We hope this book is informative, but even more - that it is thought provoking. We hope it inspires, leading the reader to contemplate other questions, applications, and potential solutions in creating good designs for all.

Currently people deal with various entities (such as hardware, software, buildings, spaces, communities and other people), to meet specific goals while going about their everyday activities in work and leisure environments. These entities have become more and more complex and incorporate functions that hitherto had never been allocated such as automation, use in virtual environments, connectivity, personalization, mobility and friendliness. This book contributes to the analysis of human-system interactions from the perspective of ergonomics, regardless of how simple or complex they are, while incorporating the needs of users and workers in a healthy safe, efficient and enjoyable manner. This book provides a comprehensive review of the state of the art of current ergonomic in design methods and techniques that are being applied to products, machinery, equipment, workstations and systems while taking new technologies and their applications into consideration.? Ergonomics in Design: Methods and Techniques is organized into four sections and 30 chapters covering topics such as conceptual aspects of ergonomics in design, the knowledge of human characteristics applied to design, and the methodological aspects of design. Examples are shown in several areas of design including, but not limited to, consumer products, games, transport, education, architecture, fashion, sustainability, biomechanics, intelligent systems, virtual reality, and neurodesign. This book will: Introduces the newest developments in social-cultural approaches Shows different ergonomics in design methodological approaches Divulges the ways that ergonomics can contribute to a successful design Applies different subjects to support the design including –ergonomics, engineering, architecture, urbanism, neuro, and product designs. Presents recent technologies in ergonomic design, as applied to product design. With the contributions from a team of 75 researchers from 11 countries, the book covers the state-of-the-art of ergonomics in a way to produce better design.

This book summarizes the new research results presented at the 12th Joint Conference on Knowledge-Based Software Engineering (JCKBSE 2018), which took place on August 27–30, 2018 on the island of Corfu, Greece. The JCKBSE is a well-established international biennial conference that focuses on the applications of Artificial Intelligence in Software Engineering. The JCKBSE 2018 was organized by the Department of Informatics of the University of Piraeus, the Department of Computer and Information Engineering of Nippon Institute of Technology, and the Department of Informatics of Ionian University. The book will benefit not only experts and researchers in the field of (Knowledge-Based) Software Engineering, but also general readers in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Computational Intelligence and Computer Science who wish to learn more about the field of (Knowledge-Based) Software Engineering and its applications. An extensive list of bibliographic references at the end of each paper encourages readers to probe further into the application areas that interest them most.

Although still true to its original focus on the person–machine interface, the field of human factors psychology (ergonomics) has expanded to include stress research, accident analysis and prevention, and nonlinear dynamical systems theory (how systems change over time), human group dynamics, and environmental psychology. Reflecting new developments in the field, Human Factors Engineering and Ergonomics: A Systems Approach, Second Edition addresses a wide range of human factors and ergonomics principles found in conventional and twenty-first century technologies and environments. Based on the author’s thirty years of experience, the text emphasizes fundamental concepts, systems thinking, the changing nature of the person-machine interface, and the dynamics of systems as they change over time. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Developments in working memory, degrees of freedom in cognitive processes, subjective workload, decision-making, and situation awareness Updated information on cognitive workload and fatigue Additional principles for HFE, networks, multiple person-machine systems, and human-robot swarms Accident analysis and prevention includes resilience, new developments in safety climate, and an update to the inventory of accident prevention techniques and their relative effectiveness Problems in "big data" mining Psychomotor control and its relevance to human-robot systems Navigation in real-world environment Trust in automation and augmented cognition Computer technology permeates every aspect of the human–machine system, and has only become more ubiquitous since the previous edition. The systems are becoming more complex, so it should stand to reason that theories need to evolve to cope with the new sources of complexity. While many books cover traditional topics and theory, they to not focus on the practical problems students will face in the future. With broad coverage that ranges from physical ergonomics to cognitive aspects of human-machine interaction and includes dynamic approaches to system failure, this book increases the number of methods and analytical tools that are available for the human factors researcher.

الطريق 312 هو الطريق الصيني 66. وهو ينساب ممتداً مسافة ثلاثة آلاف ميل من الشرق إلى الغرب، ماراً عبر مدن المصانع من المناطق الساحلية، وعبر القلب الريفي للصين، ثم صعوداً إلى داخل صحراء غوبي، حيث يندمج هناك مع طريق الحرير القديم. ويشهد هذا الطريق العام كل جزء من الثورة الاجتماعية والاقتصادية التي تقلب الصين عاليها سافلها. وفي هذا الكتاب المدهش على نحو كامل، والشخصي على نحو عميق، يرتحل مراسل الراديو الوطني العام روب غيفورد الجدير بالثناء، والمتحدث بطلاقة بلغة الماندرين، في هذه الرحلة المؤثرة على طول الطريق 312 من بدايته في مدينة الازدهار شنغهاي إلى نهايته على الحدود من كازاخستان. ويكشف غيفورد الفسيفساء الغنية للحياة الصينية الحديثة في كل تناقضاتها، وهو يطرح الأسئلة الحرجة التي نسألها جميعنا عن الصين: هل ستكون فعلاً القوة العظمى الكونية التالية؟ هل هي صلبة وقوية مثلما تبدو من الخارج؟ ومن هم الشعب الصيني العادي، الذين يفترض أن ينتمي إليهم القرن الحادي والعشرون؟ وغيفورد ليس وحيداً في رحلته، فإن أضخم هجرة في التاريخ الإنساني تحدث الآن على طول الطرق العامة مثل الطريق 312، وعشرات الملايين من الناس يغادرون بيوتهم بحثاً عن العمل. وهو يرى علامات ازدهار الاقتصاد الحضري في كل مكان، ولكنه يكشف الغطاء أيضاً عن الكثير من مواطن الضعف في البلاد، وعن بعض المشكلات المستحكمة التي يمكنها أن تُخرِج صعود الصين عن مساره. والمغامرة الآسرة للانتباه مرويَّة كلها من خلال جماعة من أصحاب الشخصيات الفياضة بالألوان الذين يقابلهم غيفورد: من مذيعين ثرثارين ناجحين من شباب حضر ممتهنين طموحين من مقدمي برامج المقابلات، ومن فلاحين مفقَّرين ونساء ساقطات مأساويات، ومن باعة أجهزة الهاتف الجوال، ومن مرضى الإيدز، ومن رهبان التيبت. وهو يركب مع أعضاء من نادي سيارات الجيب في شنغهاي، ويركب مجاناً بإيقاف السيارات عبر صحراء غوبي، ويغني الكارايوكي وهي أغان شعبية وفق موسيقى مسجلة مع العمال المهاجرين في شاحنات تتوقف على طول الطريق. وروب غيفورد، وهو يروي رحلاته على طول الطريق 312، يعطي وجهاً لبلاد كانت تاريخياً، بالنسبة إلى الغربيين، بلاداً بلا وجه، وينفخ الحياة في أمة أحيلت في الكثير من الأحيان إلى إحصاءات اقتصادية. وأخيراً، فهو يصدر الصوت بالتحذير من أن الأمور ليست كلها على ما يرام في قلب الأرض الصينية، وأن مشكلات جدية تنتظر أمامها، وأن مستقبل الغرب قد صار مستقبلا مرتبطاً ارتباطاً لا يمكن فكاكه مع مصير 1.3 بليون نسمة من الشعب الصيني. العبيكان للنشر
