User Experience Design

Definition of methods and tools for enhancing user satisfaction with a product by improving usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction with the product. The research has its roots in human factors and ergonomics and focuses on the understating of the interaction between human users, machines, and the contextual environments to design systems that address the user experience. The research adopts human monitoring devices to objectify the experience lived by users (such as eye tracking, bio-sensors, and physiological parameters measuring tools) and defines specific protocol analysis to properly collect and interpret experimental data, according to a Human-in-the-Loop (HITL) approach. Motion capture technologies can also be used to track and digitalized the real users’ movements.
