Derived from the conference submissions for the 2012 AHFE conference, this volume focuses on types of human-modeled technology. Topics include digital human model types, 3D scanning, human patterns in terms of physiological and psychological interactions, including human algorithms that aim to model human forms, interactions, and dynamics. It also covers validation of digital human modes and the exploration of future of human models. This book is for Human factors and ergonomics engineers, cognitive engineers, human computer interaction engineers, human performance modeling engineers, and students in related fields.
