Introduction
Hi! I'm a PhD researcher in Industrial Design Engineering at TU Delft. My research topic is "Extended Reality (XR) for Human Centred Design". Why XR? XR is a way we simulate and practice the real-world experience in a safe and low-cost manner. This status empowers people to explore more disruptive and creative solution at the very beginning. In brief, "XR make impossible possible under a realistic and safe condition".

Article
When designing large‐scale products, like airplanes, involving the opinions from end‐users, like passengers, in conceptualization is difficult. Including user evaluation at the early stage is of foremost importance to develop products or services that reach user satisfaction. Comfort‐related assessments are particularly difficult to implement with...

For designing large-scale products like an airplane, engaging end-users in the concept phase is difficult. However, early user evaluation is important to choose the path which fits the user’s needs best. In particular, comfort-related assessments are difficult to conduct with digital models that are shown on a desktop PC application. Digital Human...

The present work introduces a cyclical model which showcases the process of immersion during Immersive Technological Experiences (ITEs) such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality. This model is based on the identified concepts around immersion and immersive environments across 30 years. The concepts' similarities were used to orga...

Ensuring surgeons are well-trained in various skills is of paramount importance to patient safety. Surgical simulators were introduced to laparoscopy training during the last 2 decades for basic skills training. The main drawback of current simulation-based laparoscopy training is their lack of true representation of the intro-operative experience....
Article
BACKGROUND:The Human-Centered Design methodology advocates VR prototyping, as an effective tool to evaluate concepts in a cost-efficient, time-saving way. It is the question of whether it works in the development of a product intended to increase privacy while flying. OBJECTIVE:The current study aims at the application of virtual reality on the ev...

Virtual reality (VR) training is widely used in several minimal invasive surgery (MIS) training curricula for procedural training. However, VR training in its current state lack immersive training environments, such as using head-mounted displays that is implemented in military or aviation training and even entertainment. The virtual operating room...

Immersive Virtual Reality (VR) laparoscopy simulation is emerging to enhance the attractiveness and realism of surgical procedural training. This study analyses the usability and presence of a Virtual Operating Room (VOR) setup via user evaluation and sets out the key elements for an immersive environment during a laparoscopic procedural training....

Motion tracking software for assessing laparoscopic surgical proficiency has been proven to be effective in differentiating between expert and novice performances. However, with several indices that can be generated from the software, there is no set threshold that can be used to benchmark performances. The aim of this study was to identify the bes...

Smartphone is nowadays the most prevalent computer system, thus a lot of attention from academia and industries has been put to evaluate its quality of use. However, Smartphone has more complex interaction modes and usage scenarios than PC and laptop. And therefore assessing its quality using a conventional usability evaluation is not sufficient. M...

The usability now serves as a fundamental quality of a computational device, e.g. smartphone. Moreover, the smartphone has firmly embedded into our daily life as an indispensable part, so the context and style that user may interact with them are largely different from a decade ago. Nowadays, testing usability with end user has become a common sens...

Eye-tracking technology, as an objective-recording method of user’s eye movement data, has widely been applied in human–computer interface usability test. The quantitative analysis of eye movement data is good at comparing different UI designs; however, it can hardly probe the influential factors of usability issues from a UCD perspective. This res...

Travel costs and time consumption play an important role in industrial factory planning; thus many companies intend to use remote assistance and virtual co-location of the workers via software instead. Shared visual context can help in remote assistance scenarios and mixed reality approaches promise to transport the local situation to the external...

The Industry 4.0 refers to a industrial ecology which will merge the information system, physical system and service system into an integrate platform. Since now the industrial designers either conceive the physical part of products, or design the User Interfaces of computer systems, the new industrial ecology will give them a chance to redefine th...

Question
Dear Peers,
I recently received an invitation as a guest editor from a journal under Open Access Journal Research Center (OAJRC). The OAJRC is not listed in the predatory publishers, but the website looks quite sceptical (http://www.oajrc.com/). It was listed in CNKI as a formal journal publisher(https://scholar.cnki.net/home/search?region=db&val=SJDW, sorry only in Chinese). But I've googled about it but not much information appeared. Do you know more about it? Is it a trustworthy organization to contribute?
Thanks a lot for your information!
Best Regards,
Meng Li
Question
I only find a BMC journal "Trials" to publish " randomized controlled trials in health ". https://trialsjournal.biomedcentral.com/
Are there any platform to publish general protocol for ergonomics analysis? I'm doing ergonomic assessment in Virtual Reality and developing an analysis protocol based on case studies. My supervisor ask me to publish my protocol somewhere.
Question
I have two sets, one contains 8 experts and the other contains 29 novices. Both evaluated their experience with 5 different questionnaires(e.g. 5-point, 10-point, and 21-points Likert style scales). The responses are non-normally distributed. Which type of non parametric test is applicable to compare the sum? And which is suite to reckon single item? Do I need a post hoc test?
