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:
Scientific Application of Virtual Reality Technology to Forensic Issues

Abstract:
In forensic cases, the development of admissible and compelling visual demonstratives requires planning, state-of-the-art tools, and specialized expertise. This seminar will cover the technologies used to investigate, test, analyze, simulate, and visualize an incident. The seminar will focus on the ultimate development of interactive virtual reality (VR) courtroom demonstratives from inception to completion.

Bio:
Dr. Figueroa utilizes her multi-disciplinary expertise to assist clients in human factors, safety, and biomechanical analyses, understanding of complex scenarios and in the investigation and prevention of accidents. Dr. Figueroa has been involved in a wide range of cases involving topics such as machine guarding, fall protection, material handling, risk communication, warnings, instructions, slips, trips and falls, excavation equipment, consumer products, medical devices, maritime ports, boating and water-sports, strength capabilities, visibility and conspicuity of objects in low light and low-visibility environments, driver distraction, perceptual capabilities and limitations associated with vehicle operation, and decision and motor control response times.

Before joining Explico, Dr. Figueroa was a doctoral researcher at the University of Michigan’s Center for Ergonomics in the areas of biomechanics and physical ergonomics. Her doctoral dissertation work focused on providing new data for predicting hand strength capabilities and the development of a 3D model of the hand that can be used to enhance current ergonomic analyses. More recently, she has performed research related to driver distraction, warnings effectiveness, and visual and auditory cues in Virtual Reality.
