The availability of electric lighting has changed the lives of people the world over and lighting is a major consumer of energy, yet little has been written about the forms of lighting that can alter human visual capabilities and enhance productivity, ensure comfort and create appropriate lighting conditions. It is important to understand the forms of lighting available, and their appropriateness to specific activities, in order to apply the technology most effectively. This book is a comprehensive review of the interaction of people and lighting and supercedes the author's classic Human Factors in Lighting. The technology has changed markedly in recent years with the introduction of new light sources and new methods of light distribution. The significance of specialist lighting applications, such as photobiology, are now becoming better understood. The nature of work itself has changed, and hence so have lighting requirements. Equally, the development of the technology has created new opportunities for improving peoples' work and leisure environments.
This book focuses on the role of ergonomics in the manufacturing context, and looks at a number of design issues: anthropometry, posture, manual materials handling, lighting, noise, warnings, signals, controls, information processing, workstation layout, process layout, shift-work, job satisfaction, task analysis, ergonomic assessment and enhancing manufacturability and maintainability. Intended for engineers and students of engineering who design manufacturing systems and workstations, this text is also invaluable to human factors/ergonomics professionals who want to understand the manufacturing applications of ergonomics.
The first edition of Designing for Older Adults: Principles and Creative Human Factors Approaches broke ground as an easily accessible source of information, a primer on designing for older adults. In this second edition, the authors, as any good human factors practitioner would, have considered comments from readers. They have revised and updated each of the original chapters, rearranged some of them for a more natural flow, added a new section of tutorials, and provided updated recommended readings. New in the Second Edition: Two new applications chapters: Transportation and Aging-in-Place New Tutorials section provides hands-on guidance for critical issues Re-organization of Design Guidelines section allows for better flow of topics The new Tutorials section begins by focusing on general issues that need to be considered when involving older adults generally in research and usability studies and more specifically in focus group studies. It elucidates statistical considerations relevant to user testing with older adults and modeling approaches such as task analysis, error prediction, and GOMS analysis. Given the prevalence of multimedia in today’s world, the authors include a tutorial on design considerations for multimedia products in general but especially for older adults. Meet the Needs of Older Adults through Proper Design Reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the field, this multidisciplinary author team translates a vast array of academic literature into guidelines without losing its strong grounding in science. They discuss the role the field of human factors plays in creating technology that is effective and safe to use. This book provides information specific enough to be immediately applicable yet general enough to be relevant to technologies of the future.
The most comprehensive and up-to-date optics resource available Prepared under the auspices of the Optical Society of America, the five carefully architected and cross-referenced volumes of the Handbook of Optics, Third Edition, contain everything a student, scientist, or engineer requires to actively work in the field. From the design of complex optical systems to world-class research and development methods, this definitive publication provides unparalleled access to the fundamentals of the discipline and its greatest minds. Individual chapters are written by the world's most renowned experts who explain, illustrate, and solve the entire field of optics. Each volume contains a complete chapter listing for the entire Handbook, extensive chapter glossaries, and a wealth of references. This pioneering work offers unprecedented coverage of optics data, techniques, and applications. Volume II covers design, fabrications, testing, sources, detectors, radiometry, and photometry.
The fourth edition of the Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics has been completely revised and updated. This includes all existing third edition chapters plus new chapters written to cover new areas. These include the following subjects: Managing low-back disorder risk in the workplace Online interactivity Neuroergonomics Office ergonomics Social networking HF&E in motor vehicle transportation User requirements Human factors and ergonomics in aviation Human factors in ambient intelligent environments As with the earlier editions, the main purpose of this handbook is to serve the needs of the human factors and ergonomics researchers, practitioners, and graduate students. Each chapter has a strong theory and scientific base, but is heavily focused on real world applications. As such, a significant number of case studies, examples, figures, and tables are included to aid in the understanding and application of the material covered.
The present book is based on the experience of the author. The experience is mainly the result of years of research, of consulting work, and in participation in policy decision making in many felds, most, but not all, related to outdoor lighting. To some degree, the book represents the preference of the author. The selection of the subjects is based on more than 50 years of experience of what is desirable to know for persons engaged in scientifc research or practical application in the felds of lighting and vision. The subjects deal with a number of fundamental aspects. The theorists must have them at their fngertips, whereas the practical engineers may assume them as known in their daily work. The selection of subjects is based in part by the questions that came to the author over the years, but even more by the preference of the author himself. In this respect, it is a personal book. Thus, it should be stressed that the book is not a ‘handbook’ or even a ‘textbook’; many subjects that commonly are treated in such books are not included here. Not because they lack importance, but because the author feels that they are adequately treated elsewhere. Some relevant works are mentioned in the References. Over the years, the author has been engaged in giving courses on vision and lighting, lately more in particular on Masterclasses on a post-graduate or post-doctorate level.
