Design and research for advanced human augmentation in the industrial work context

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

    Abstract

    Advanced human augmentation provides a human-centred perspective on technology design. It builds upon earlier technological concepts such as ubiquitous computing, wearable computing, augmented- virtual- and mixed realities, autonomous systems and ambient intelligence. This tutorial contemplates advanced human augmentation in the industrial work context, and considers the requirements for a future augmented Superworker and the prerequisites for their advanced augmentation. In this tutorial, it is anticipated that to support the design of new augmenting solutions current human-centred design practices should be reconsidered and enhanced in new directions.
