The Center for Ergonomics operates within the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering in the College of Engineering. We have a long-standing history and distinguished record of research in the areas of Cognitive Ergonomics, Biomechanics and Work Physiology and Safety. We also provide instruction, both to graduate students in various departments across campus as well as professional ergonomists, engineers, and designers in private industry through our continuing education courses. Students, research scientists, and research sponsors are drawn to the Center because of its faculty who are experts in a broad range of topics in Cognitive and Physical Ergonomics and because of the Center's extensive resources, state-of-the-art laboratories, test equipment, expert staff, and computer systems.
University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI)
The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute is dedicated to achieving safe and sustainable transportation for a global society. With a multimillion-dollar research program, broad faculty expertise, and multiple collaborators, UMTRI is committed to interdisciplinary research that will ultimately increase driving safety and further transportation systems knowledge. Their focus include driver's behavior, injury, biomechanics, data fusion, and connected vehicles.
The Human-automation Interaction and Cognition Lab (THInC) at UM

    THInC Lab conducts research primarily in the context of highly complex event-driven domains, such as aviation, the military, space operations, medicine, and the automotive industry. The main research interests include:

  • Design and evaluation of multimodal interfaces (including sight, sound, and touch) in support of human-computer interaction and computer-supported collaborative work
  • Support for attention and interruption management through adaptive notifications and preattentive reference
  • Design of decision aids that support trust calibration and adaptive function allocation
  • Human error and error/disturbance management
Interaction & Collaboration Research Lab (ICRL) at UM
