Operations and Human Factors
At Human factors, we study how people overcome limitations and how work can better suit their abilities. Read how the Ministry of Defence, emergency services, and also companies use our knowledge on this subject.
Our vision on operations and human factors
TNO supports the Dutch armed forces with innovative analysis and evaluation methods, models, and the latest simulation technologies.
Our latest developments
Human behaviour and organisational innovation
Focus on interventions for behavioural change to accelerate the acceptance of 'new' behaviour by customers and citizens.
The Human performance expertise group focuses on the optimization and improvement of human performance in challenging circumstances.
Effective, efficient and flexible armed forces
How do people overcome their self-imposed limitations? What work best suits their abilities? Find out how we research this.
Adaptive learning architectures
Robust and agile: the new conditions of an adaptive defence organisation. TNO carries out applied research into the adaptive capacity of defence.

Jelte BosFunctie:Professor Vestibular Motion And Orientation Perception
The organs of balance are at the basis of our vestibular system, playing a major role in motion and orientation perception, and the control of our body, head and eye movements. To optimize this perception and control, our central nervous system integrates the information from the organs of balance with that of the eyes and other senses, as well as with cognitive information.
José KerstholtFunctie:Professor Behavioral Decision Making
My research area is human decision making in the context of safety. A main finding in this field is that human decision making skills are far from optimal. Most of our decisions are made intuitively, based on incomplete knowledge, and with limited reflection. Despite these insights however, decision makers themselves are generally quite confident about the accuracy of their decisions.
Mark NeerincxFunctie:Professor Human-centered Computing
Progress in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, conversational agents, connectivity and sensing technology increases the capabilities of physical and virtual agents to operate more and more autonomously, possibly as team members, companions or partners of humans. However, the information and decision-making processes of these agents differ from human’s processes fundamentally.
Peter WerkhovenFunctie:Chief Scientific Officer
My research and teaching activities are about human perception and interaction in computer simulated worlds, focusing on tactile and brain-computer interfaces for navigating simulated worlds; effect, stress and body ownership in augmented reality; and meaningful control of autonomous intelligent systems.
