The Human Systems Laboratory (HSL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a research group within the MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. HSL performs research to improve the understanding of human physiological and cognitive capabilities to optimize human-system effectiveness and to develop appropriate countermeasures and evidence-based engineering design criteria.
Research is interdisciplinary, using techniques from biomechanics, sensory-motor physiology, human performance assessment, human factors engineering, signal processing, artificial intelligence, and biostatistics. These methods are applied to space suit and exoskeleton design, wearable and virtual/augmented reality technologies, planetary mission resource utilization, space teleoperation, astronaut and pilot disorientation, artificial gravity, automation/autonomy, human-system task modeling, and display and control design. Systems evaluated include exoskeletons, aircraft, spacecraft, and vehicles.
Dr. Dagdeviren is invited to speak at HSL Lab on "Wearable and Implantable Devices ‘On the Go.’"
