Chair of Human-Machine Systems
New ways to interact, naturally and efficiently!
Welcome to the Chair of Human-Machine Systems!
The Chair is part of the Department of Psychology and Ergonomics of the Technische Universität Berlin. Its focus lies on the development, the evaluation, and the application of human-machine systems with a special emphasis on human abilities and capabilities. Chair of Human-Machine Systems is Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Rötting.
Our research focuses on new technologies for human-machine interactions that support the human and offers new interaction techniques to design interaction in a natural and efficient way. The main focus of the department lies in providing methods to optimize the evaluation of human- machine systems based on the knowledge of human perception and information processing, the development of human- machine systems which adapt according to workload and performance, and the development of emotional as well as multimodal human- machine systems.
Based on our focus, we research in five areas:
These areas of research are worked on in several projects, research assignments and own research in an interdisciplinary and comprehensive mode. To do so we conduct our research together with various industrial and scientific partners. Our cooperation with the industry enables us to integrate new trends in our research projects.
We offer a wide range of courses, colloquiums and seminars for students and other interested persons dealing with aspects and questions of human- machine systems. It is also possible to join our interdisciplinary team of the Department of Human-Machine Systems.
