Feeding the big Cat: A university-industry research collaboration for human-machine interfaces
Between 2013-2019, Professor Pat Langdon ran a series of industry funded projects with Jaguar Land Rover based on the very latest human interface issues facing automotive manufacturers, combining Human Factors Engineering with advanced Machine Learning and AI techniques.
This programme generated several projects and a series of international patents, amounting to £2.1m of funding.
In this fascinating discussion, Pat will talk about the often difficult and time-consuming process of obtaining funding from industry and how his work with JLR led to the development of ground breaking Motion Adaptive Touchscreen Systems for Automotive (MATSA) predictive technology to enhance and automate the interaction of the driver with in-vehicle systems, such as touchscreens and 3D head-up displays. The technology whilst licensed for automotive use, is available for non-automotive applications and Pat is now looking to use his expertise in designing human machine interfaces in manufacturing and beyond.
Professor Patrick Langdon is a Professor of Engineering Design, Transportation, and Inclusion at Edinburgh NAPIER School of Engineering and the Built Environment (SEBE). He is the incoming head of the Transport Research Institute. He is an Experimental Psychologist and has worked in AI, Robotics and Engineering Design for over 20 Years. Historically he has led research in Inclusive Design and contributed to its literature. Until recently he was a Reader (PRA) in Computer Engineering (EECE) at the University of Cambridge Engineering Department and led research there in Inclusive Design, Ergonomics and Human Factors.
