Activity-driven Design Approach to the Novel Control Room Environments

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    This paper reports an ongoing work carried out in a project Tilava (Spacious). The aim of the project is four-fold: 1) to study how the control room as a space/ environment enables operators to understand and control the system under their supervision; 2) to examine the possibilities to improve the control space's ability to communicate the process behind by better acknowledging the control room's physical, social and virtual space qualities and how these qualities could be supported through the introduction of new technology; 3) to create a future control room concept and 4) develop methods for early expert user involvement in design and elicitation of user requirements.
