AREA recognizes that human-centered design is critical to building and deploying successful AR applications, devices, and services.  The Human Factors Committee is a forum for members to exchange ideas, resources, and research on best practices.

Focus areas for this committee include the following as applied uniquely to AR:

  1. User research techniques
  2. Design methods
  3. Implementation success stories
  4. Latest research findings

Current Activities

  • The Committee’s monthly meetings are highlighted by expert presentations. It then takes actions to implement learnings into discussions and AREA initiatives.
  • For example, there are actions in place to extract the lessons learned from the recent Human Factors Committee presentations and summarize them into guidelines for UX Design for AR.
  • The Committee is also looking at accessibility limitations of VR, safety concerns of AR.
  • The Committee is studying research conducted at Emery-Riddle Aeronautical University on the user experience and usability of software, products, and processes.
