Ergonomics usability evaluation methodologies

IBV acts as a technology delivery centre and as an RTD and advisor centre linked to the industry at national (Spain) and regional level (Valencia, Spain). Besides, IBV is one of the main actors in the field of disability in Spain and member of AAATE (Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology in Europe).

During the IPCA project, IBV has reinforced its insight in new methodologies for the assessment of Human Computer Interaction for people with disabilities. These offer new possibilities of application in the field of user adaptation and ergonomics in IST and in the workplace.

Among these possibilities, accessibility to users with disabilities to IST in general as well as Internet in particular can be remarked.

The way users interact with the system can also be exploited in new fields such as mobile telecommunications, Ambient Intelligence and Smart Homes. It can be a feasible input for SmartDust products placed over Wearable systems.

IBV is able to measure and analyse ergonomics and usability aspects in the above-mentioned fields, and therefore provide advisory services to the industry for new applications and product development initiatives, as well as act as developer or promoter of intermediate applications.
