Applied Ergonomics to Publish University of Waterloo Research

Congratulations to the University of Waterloo, whose paper has been accepted for publication in Applied Ergonomics: Human Factors in Technology and Society, a leading journal on ergonomics and human factors in systems design. The paper, “Improving human-in-the-loop simulation to optimize soldier-systems integration,” addresses important issues of soldier survivability, vulnerability and overall operational performance.

The University of Waterloo’s Dr. Steven L. Fischer assembled a kinesiology and biomechanics research team to explore and understand the needs of the military for digital human modeling tools, including those developed by SantosHuman Inc.
