Local Applications of the Ecological Approach To Human-Machine Systems

1st Edition

Peter A. Hancock, John M. Flach, Jeff Caird, Kim J. Vicente
May 01, 1995

There is a growing consensus in the human factors/ergonomics community that human factors research has had little impact on significant applied problems. Some have suggested that the problem lies in the fact that much HF/E research has been based on the wrong type of psychology, an information...
