    In 2016, T. Sheridan published a review paper on the status and challenges of Human-Robotic Interactions (HRI), and it continues to be one of the most cited publications in Human Factors. In this most recent installment of Research to Practice, answering the “So What” question, we will have Dr. Sheridan review this paper's findings and suggest further research. Justin Croyle, from Amazon robotics, will talk about his work with robotics and some of the current and future needs he sees that practitioners need from scientists to make HRI as effective, efficient, and safe as possible.

    Humanity is facing multiple crises of its own making including the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, land degradation, and widespread social inequality. In this webinar, we will discuss the core skills and core content that needs to be included in HFE curricula to prepare our future (and current) HFE practitioners to address the multiple crises referred to collectively as “sustainability”. In this webinar, Prof. Pereira from the Global Change Institute and the Stockholm Resilience Center will engage in a dialogue with Prof. Andrew Thatcher from the International Ergonomics Association's Future of Work Task Force about what needs to go into the curricula of HFE programs to prepare students for the challenges presented by sustainability and climate change.

    This webinar panel will discuss the relationship between user-centered design and post-market data across the product lifecycle. When developing a product, data from post-market sources on related products should be streamlined into the product development process. To do this requires a structure where usability metrics are integrated into post-market data collection. This also presents the opportunity to use post-market usability data for additional methods of risk management. This additional surveillance prompts questions about what thresholds might be imposed that prompt modifications of the product or initiate product remediation efforts.

    In this presentation, Dr. Dias will discuss how human factors methods can and should be incorporated into the design, development, and validation stages of medical extended reality (XR) applications. He will illustrate these concepts by showing his research funded by NASA/TRISH and DoD-Health Agency to develop XR-based medical training and clinical support systems for emergency care in austere environments.

    Have you ever thought about where to go to improve your ergonomics knowledge or skills? Is there ergo information you’re seeking but can’t find a resource to provide it? At HFES and AES, we are here to share information from our experts and help you sharpen those skills. In this session, you will learn about three university-based continuing education training programs. Representatives from Ohio State University, University of Michigan, and North Carolina State University will share information about their programs (material, objectives, target audience, format, etc.). You will have an opportunity to ask questions and join in a discussion of the benefits and training needs of those who apply ergonomics in the workplaces.

    Changing operational models, coupled with increasing digitalization, automation and emerging autonomous systems are reconfiguring how complex safety-critical systems are being organized, designed and operated. In turn, these advancing technological capabilities are altering the required skills, tasks and needs of sharp-end workers and their work environment. This webinar presents ongoing developments that are transforming operational paradigms in relation to future work environment design and operator needs in two sectors: (i) shipping and (ii) offshore energy. The shift from sharp-end operators living and working onboard their assets (e.g. physically onboard a ship or oil and gas platform) and to increasing capabilities for remote, multi-field onshore control and supervision has implications not only for the skills and competency requirements of operators, but their work environment and system design. We discuss several ongoing academic research and industry projects focusing on work environment design of offshore and onshore control centers related to design and operational requirements, and the human factors challenges faced in supporting increasingly distributed and onshore operations.

    In this webinar, Dr. Mustafa Demir and Dr. Heather Lum will explore various topics focused on the training of Human-AI-Robot teams. Both Dr. Lum and Dr. Demir are faculty members at the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering and affiliates of the Center for Human, AI, Robot Teaming at Arizona State University. Over the years, their research has focused on issues such as team coordination, team effectiveness, and the use of games and virtual/mixed environments for training and educational purposes. In this webinar, they will provide an overview of their research while highlighting the broader themes, issues, and trends that their work addresses. After Drs. Demir and Lum have summarized their work, we will open the floor for a question and answer period.

    Adopting a reproducible workflow for your computational/quantitative research is a win-win-proposition: You work more efficiently and avoid common pitfalls, and the systematic documentation you create enables other scholars to engage with and build upon your work. This webinar will sketch out the fundamental principles of conducting reproducible research, and present specifications for constructing documentation that is easily shareable and satisfies the policies for replication materials that are now commonly adopted by journals and funders. The examples we use to illustrate reproducible practices will be implemented with R Markdown, but we will emphasize that the underlying principles can be applied to research conducted with any scriptable software package.

    In this presentation, Herriges demonstrates how the values of engineers and other transportation professionals are applied in the design process…and how those priorities differ from the values of the general public. By showing how transportation investments are a means to an end and not an end unto themselves, Herriges reveals how the standard approach to issues like fighting congestion, addressing speeding, and designing intersections only makes transportation problems worse, at great cost in terms of both safety and resources. In contrast, the Strong Towns approach to transportation focuses on bottom-up techniques for spending less and getting higher returns, all while improving quality of life for residents of a community. Fixing our broken transportation system will involve not just engineers, but local residents and officials who have become effective and empowered advocates, connected with others to make real change.
