Human Factors Laboratory

The Human Factors laboratory is used for the study of human cognition; its distribution across individuals, its organisation during real-world tasks, and technologies to augment its capability.

We conduct state-of-the-art research on complex tasks, such as Command and Control, and address team cognition challenges using simulations of crisis management, strategic planning or decision-making in various space and security domains.
