The Human Performance Seminar Series (836) from the Center for Ergonomics is open to all. U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering graduate students and faculty are especially encouraged to attend.

Title: Utilizing Emerging Technology to Support Ergonomics

Abstract: Emerging technology, particularly wearable devices, has the potential to enhance many aspects of industrial ergonomics. Toyota has been trialing such devices since 2016, leading to the current implementation of 400+ shoulder exoskeletons. In addition, trials in wearable sensors, computer vision, and virtual/augmented reality are underway. This presentation will give an overview of the various devices in trial/use and note potential benefits to ergonomics.
