Adoption of e-learning for those with special needs lags that for mainstream learners. Not much is known about barriers and facilitators that drive this disparity. The present study used focus groups and interviews to collect the views of 21 teachers...

Driver Training for Future Automated Vehicles: Introducing CHAT (CHeck, Assess, Takeover) (2020)
Report
Shaw, E., Large, D., & Burnett, G. (2020). Driver Training for Future Automated Vehicles: Introducing CHAT (CHeck, Assess, Takeover). RAC Foundation

Automated vehicles are expected to offer many benefits, including improvements in road safety, increased mobility, enhanced driver comfort, and reductions in road congestion. However, fully automated, autonomous vehicles that require no input from a... Read More about Driver Training for Future Automated Vehicles: Introducing CHAT (CHeck, Assess, Takeover).

Multimodal virtual environments: an opportunity to improve fire safety training? (2020)
Journal Article
Lawson, G., Roper, T., Shaw, E., Hsieh, M., & Cobb, S. V. (2020). Multimodal virtual environments: an opportunity to improve fire safety training?. Policy and Practice in Health and Safety, 18(2), 155-168. https://doi.org/10.1080/14773996.2020.1796085

Fires and fire-related fatalities remain a tragic and frequent occurrence. Evidence has shown that humans adopt sub-optimal behaviours during fire incidents and, therefore, training is one possible means to improve occupant survival rates. We present...

Identifying new concepts for innovative lighting-based interventions to influence movement and behaviours in train stations (2020)
Journal Article
Hughes, N., Ryan, B., Hallewell, M., Coad, N., Grant, A., Parrott, N., …Thompson, K. (2020). Identifying new concepts for innovative lighting-based interventions to influence movement and behaviours in train stations. Lighting Research and Technology, 52(8), 976-990. https://doi.org/10.1177/1477153520904405

The disorderly and disrupted movement of passengers within train stations are key concerns in rail transport, especially where there are increasing numbers of passengers, coupled with often out-dated, adapted station spaces. With careful planning and... Read More about Identifying new concepts for innovative lighting-based interventions to influence movement and behaviours in train stations.

Robots in special education: reasons for low uptake (2019)
Journal Article
Galvez Trigo, M. J., Standen, P. J., & Cobb, S. V. G. (2019). Robots in special education: reasons for low uptake. Journal of Enabling Technologies, 13(2), 59-69. https://doi.org/10.1108/jet-12-2018-0070

Purpose: This paper identifies the main reasons for low uptake of robots in Special Education, obtained from an analysis of previous studies that used robots in the area, and from interviewing Special Education teachers about the topic. Design/me... Read More about Robots in special education: reasons for low uptake.

How Stress and Mental Workload are Connected (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Alsuraykh, N. H., Wilson, M. L., Tennent, P., & Sharples, S. (2019). How Stress and Mental Workload are Connected. In PervasiveHealth'19: Proceedings of the 13th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare, 371-376. doi:10.1145/3329189.3329235

Mental Workload (MWL) can be both good and bad; we can thrive under high MWL, or our performance can drop if the demands become either too low or too high. Similarly, stress is not always bad, short term stress can be beneficial to overcome a challen... Read More about How Stress and Mental Workload are Connected.

An investigation of the effects of driver age when using novel navigation systems in a head-up display (2019)
Journal Article
Pampel, S., Lamb, K., Burnett, G., Skrypchuk, L., Hare, C., & Mouzakitis, A. (2019). An investigation of the effects of driver age when using novel navigation systems in a head-up display. Presence: Teleoperators and Virtual Environments, 27(1), 32-45. https://doi.org/10.1162/pres_a_00317

Although drivers gain experience with age, many older drivers are faced with age-related deteriorations that can lead to a higher crash risk. Head-Up Displays (HUDs) have been linked to significant improvements in driving performance for older driver...

A sociotechnical system approach to virtual citizen science: an application of BS ISO 27500:2016 (2019)
Journal Article
Houghton, R., Sprinks, J., Wardlaw, J., Bamford, S., & Marsh, S. (2019). A sociotechnical system approach to virtual citizen science: an application of BS ISO 27500:2016. JCOM: Journal of Science Communication, 18(01), https://doi.org/10.22323/2.18010201

We discuss the potential application to virtual citizen science of a recent standard (BS ISO 27500:2016 “The human-centred organisation”) which encourages the adoption of a sociotechnical systems perspective across a wide range of businesses, organiz...
