The Human Performance (HP) expertise group focuses on the optimization and improvement of human performance in challenging circumstances.
We do this by:
HP consists of three teams: Perseverance, Preparedness & Environmental Ergonomics (P2E2), Advancing Human performance in Environments that are Adverse and Demanding (AHEAD) and Perception, Cognition, Neuro & Technology (PCNT). The group has extensive knowledge of and experience with the end user and the circumstances in which they operate.
The main underlying expertise:
The group makes use of various facilities with which the conditions of an end user can be simulated in a controlled manner. The facilities are clustered around physical, mental and cognitive performance, visual perception, (dis)orientation and motion sickness, thermophysiology and immersion in virtual environments. The department also specializes in field experiments.
