Dear visitor,

my name is Claudia Geitner. I am a Human Factors Engineer working on my Engineering Doctorate in UK. Beside the ergonomic design of control rooms I have experience in software ergonomics, web user interface design and now (due to my Engineering Doctorate) I am learning about user interfaces in automobiles.

It is challenging to imagine how people behave in stressful emergency situations and how to support them at best. It starts with mindfulness of our actions, e.g. if one fails to use a new gadget or if everything needs to go fast, what helps us that we can do our tasks fast and efficient. The book “The Design of Everyday Things” from Donald Norman opened my mind. Whereas my work deals with the analysis of safety critical tasks, it is my hobby to reflect about product design and creative realisation of every day products. What is it that makes us “enjoy” a product? What are obstacles in our daily live?

In this BLOG you read about everything related to user centered design, cognitive psychology and robotics. Part of the blog is a series about “Everyday usability” including comics and good and bad examples of everyday products.
