Our Research

Our research explores the intersection of technical development and human factors, focusing on mental workload, adaptability, acceptance, and cognitive functions. We are also interested in various influencing factors such as trust, affinity, subjective knowledge, and fear. Finally, we consider environmental aspects as well as system-related factors. We apply our research in numerous contexts such as driving, shipping, collaborative robots, and software-solutions. We address these topics by using electroencephalography (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), eye tracking, physiological measures (e.g., hormone analysis), as well as behavioral approaches and surveys. We attach particular importance to the principles of open science which we apply in all steps of our research.
