Summary

This volume is concerned with digital human modeling. The utility of this area of research is to aid the design of systems that are benefitted from reducing the need for physical prototyping and incorporating ergonomics and human factors earlier in design processes. Digital human models are representations of some aspects of a human that can be inserted into simulations or virtual environments to facilitate prediction of safety, satisfaction, usability and performance.

These representations may consider the physical, physiological, cognitive, behavioral or emotional aspects. They are typically represented by some visualization with the math and science computed in the background. Explicitly, the book covers the following subject areas:

I. Applications
II. Mobility and Universal Access
III. Physical and Physiological Aspects
IV. Product and Process Design
V. Motion Analysis
VI. Cognitive Aspects
VII. Human Response and Behavioral Aspects
VIII. Novel Systems Approaches

This book is of special value to those researchers and practitioners involved in various aspects of product, process and system design worldwide. Engineers, ergonomists and human factors specialists will see a broad spectrum of applications for this research, especially in the automotive and manufacturing industries, military, aerospace and service industries such as healthcare.

Seven other titles in the Advances in Human Factors and Ergonomics Series are:
