Human Interfaces

We use a whole range of interfaces to interact with devices and systems. Common interfaces are keyboards, mice, monitors, touchscreens, buttons, pens, speakers, cameras, and microphones.

There are other methods

  • Eye or limb tracking
  • Picking up electrical impulses in the body
  • 3D detection sensing systems (e.g. infrared, camera based)
  • Computer vision to detect gestures, facial expressions or for pupil tracking.
  • Speech recognition
  • More exotic methods include sensing brain waves using an EEG (electroencephalogram)

 

We have experience in many of these technologies including EEG.

These systems are often enhanced with appropriate algorithms and can use machine learning or AI

But human interfaces are much more than the electronic and software interfaces themselves - they require careful consideration of the Human Factors.

Well-designed human interfaces place people at the centre of the product-design. This is known as Human Centred Design.
