→ We are very pleased to present the academic work from our 2017

graduating year. This work demonstrates the accumulation of skills and expertise that our final year undergraduates have been building on since their arrival with us three or four years ago. Their drive and passion is evident through their unique and innovative ideas aimed at solving the problems of 2017 and beyond. The work seen both here and at our Degree Show event, showcases work from across our current four undergraduate courses – Industrial Design & Technology BA, Product Design & Technology BSc, Design Ergonomics BSc and Ergonomics (Human Factors Design) BSc. We have retained our league table ranking of 2nd in the UK for Art and Design in the Complete University Guide 2017 – clearly demonstrating our prowess as a design leader in UK higher education. The 2016 New Designers show also brought us success with our Product Design & Technology graduate, George Moone, winning the Virgin Atlantic New Designers Award and Industrial Design & Technology graduate Elspeth MacLeod winning Runner up New Designer of the Year. We hope our winning streak continues and wish our 2017 students the best of luck.

2ND IN THE UK FOR ART & DESIGN

This year has also been a year of new beginnings, particularly with the introduction of our new User Centred Design BSc course. This exciting and innovative course will begin to take students from September 2017. Its introduction is part of a radical evolution and re-think of our undergraduate degree provision which has also seen the discontinuation of our Ergonomics (Human Factors Design) and Design Ergonomics courses from 2016. Please join me in congratulating our 2017 graduating year on their successes and progression – we wish them well for their future endeavours.

Live Project

New Designers

→ For a single week each January, students participate in an event called Live Project. The event enables students to engage with real work design briefs, set by a wide range of design firms and manufacturers, such as DCA, Samsung, Logitech and Seymour Powell. After an introduction to the challenge, students are able to choose from a selection of design briefs and are given an intensive week to develop an innovative solution that satisfies the constraints. Live Project gives students the chance to showcase the skills learnt over the course and engage with industry. It is also an excellent opportunity for students’ work to become commercial prior to graduation.

→ Each year a selection of students exhibit at the New Designers event in London. The event showcases over 3,000 of the most promising graduates from Britain’s leading art and design courses. The event attracts the industry’s leading professionals who are all excited to see what the next generation of designers are producing. The New Designers event is an amazing opportunity for the selected students to network and promote their work, as well as to be inspired by others in their chosen industry.

Guest Lectures

experience and training.

→ Students with the School are fortunate to experience an exciting array of guest lecturers that visit the school across the year. These often include leading design figures such as Sebastian Conran and also include cutting edge researchers and designers from the likes of Dyson and Adidas. Guest lectures often combine a range of both theoretical and practical workshops for students including classroom based presentations, one to one meetings with design consultants and team based activities.

Detailed are a number of events and ways in which we do this.

Degree Show Business Event

Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce (RSA) Competition → Each year Loughborough Design School selects RSA Student Design Awards briefs from the Industrial Design Studies final year module as a vehicle to empower students to tackling pressing social, environmental and economic issues through design thinking. It challenges students to open up further the potential of design to benefit society, to stretch boundaries and think differently about design; finding innovative, commercially viable, practical solutions to global social problems. We have a long history of winning competition briefs through this module, including multiple RSA competition wins and special commendations.

NEW COURSE FROM 2017

→ Annually the School’s Degree Show plays host to a special business event. This event provides an opportunity for all of its graduating students to exhibit their final year project work and for companies and members of the public to come and view it.

→ Design course which focuses on the user and their needs and requirements. The course covers the creation of products, services and systems looking at user needs from a physical, emotional and cognitive point of view. lboro.ac.uk/ucd

INDUSTRY PLACEMENTS

→ Between years 2 and 3, all design students are able to undertake either a year in industry (leading to the award of Diploma in Professional Studies) or 6 months in industry together with 6 months at an international partner university (leading to the award of Diploma in International Studies). Industry placements provide students with ‘real world’ experience. They work on live commercial projects often engaging with clients and vendors as well as colleagues in marketing or engineering functions. This is beneficial throughout the final year, and adds significantly to students’ employment prospects upon graduation. → The importance that the School places on industrial experience is demonstrated by the support given to students when applying for placement positions. All students are supported by a dedicated member of staff who acts as a point of contact for employers looking to recruit from the school. This member of staff is also able to provide support and advice regarding, for example, CVs, interviews and negotiation of contracts. → Second year Industrial Design and Product Design students undertake a compulsory module requiring the creation of a design portfolio, and throughout Semester 2 the School runs ‘portfolio surgeries’ where students receive critical feedback from staff with previous experience of hiring placement students. As a result of this support over three quarters of school students are successful in securing placements.

‘Loughborough Design School students are highly sought after for placement positions, with many employers returning annually to recruit exclusively from the School. Students work in both in-house and consultancy roles, in industry sectors as diverse as automotive, consumer electronics, media, oil and gas, sports, FMCG, toys, point of sale and packaging branding, UX and many others. Recent placement destinations include – Adidas, Aston Martin Lagonda, Cambridge Consultants, DCA, Disney, Factory Design, Foolproof, Hornby Hobbies, IBM, Jaguar Land Rover, Joseph Joseph, Kinneir Dufort, Microsoft Xbox, Mondelez, Nestle, Nissan, Pavegen, Princess Yachts, Red Bull Racing, Sebastian Conran, Seymour Powell, Smallfy and Unilever.’

INNOVATIVE LIFEGUARD SWIMMING FINS - FASTER ATTACHMENT, RUNNING AND SWIMMING SPEEDS

01

01

03

Drowning is currently the third leading cause of accidental death worldwide. A large number of these drownings take place in ocean environments, very often near the shore. Lifeguards identified a real need for innovation in swimming fins.

Unlike current fins, these fins allow lifeguards to run normally into the sea. Additionally, in soft sand, they could increase your speed.

02

These lifeguard swimming fins increase efficiency and save time in the lifesaving process and will therefore save more lives. They represent the first in the next generation of ocean lifesaving equipment.

Understanding the role design has in the everyday life of people with dementia. The aim of this study was to understand the current role design has in the everyday life of people with dementia and to investigate how user centred design can contribute to this area. The study also seeks to gain a better knowledge of how design can improve everyday life for those with dementia as well as the design needs of dementia sufferers. A mixed methods approach was used during this project, including interviews, questionnaires and analysis of personal accounts. There were 24 participants included in the project; 20 participants undertaking an online questionnaire and the remaining four from interviews. Multiple methods were used for this study due to the difficulty in recruiting participants. The obstacle in including individuals with dementia in this study was ensuring that the individual had the capacity to consent to participating. Each method used within this study allowed for this to be ensured whilst also using requirements set within the Mental Health Act, 2005. All methods used were non-invasive which minimised the strain put on the participant and they were able to answer the questions in their own time and were free to remove themselves from the study at any point. The results of the project concluded that design plays a significant role in the lives of people with dementia.

LOUGHBOROUGH DESIGN SCHOOL

Products that are designed for people with dementia can have a massive positive impact and can prolong and encourage personal independence. However, in some instances, products can cause stress and frustration to a person with dementia. The efficiency of a product depends on the individual themselves; a product that is beneficial and useful to one individual with dementia may be of no use to another. The study concludes that the success of a product that has been designed for an individual with dementia is dependent on a number of factors such as the progressiveness of the disease, the stage at which the product is introduced to the individual, the symptoms that individual has and also the attitude and perspective of the person in regard to their disease. The most beneficial finding from this project is the importance of including people with dementia in the design process whilst remembering that every person with dementia is different. Further research could be to trial new products through recruiting participants having recently been diagnosed with dementia and to test the validity of that product using participants who, despite all having dementia, will all differ greatly in the way they are affected by the disease. Through trial and error, the best possible outcome can be drawn from how useful and beneficial a new product can be to aiding a person with dementia to prolong their independence and support them in everyday life.

THE EFFECTS OF CHANGING ATTITUDES OF WALKERS ON THE CAUSAL FACTORS OF ACCIDENTS IN THE UK UPLANDS JOSEPH ALEXANDER

Mountain Rescue reported deaths declining but incidents doubling over a decade. What is the cause? This dissertation investigated the demography of visitors to UK uplands, with specific focus to investigate any shifts in risk behaviour. Attitudes and behaviours are considered to see if rates of accidents are affected as a result. Information was gathered by two linking methods. Firstly, an online survey of 300 people from selected stakeholder groups provided a wealth of quantitative information, as well as a voluntary sample group. This was followed up with semistructured interviews conducted by telephone. Thirteen telephone interviews were carried out, with the interviewees all being sourced from the online survey. The stakeholders were from a range of backgrounds including; mountain rescue, youth, competitive and tourism related groups.

The research has highlighted a changing demographic of UK upland areas. An increase in media coverage of these areas has resulted in an increase in the number of inexperienced walkers to the area, many of whom lack the skills to suit the environment. The interviews identified a small variation between existing attitudes and new attitudes towards motivations for hiking related activities in UK upland areas. The investigation found that there are multiple pressures on modern day walkers and not just that of competition, but also factors such as time and charity add significant pressure, leading to a shift in attitude. Due to the development of a more risk adverse culture a conflict between the new user capabilities and those that needed to remain safe in upland environment is created.

DOES THERMAL STRESS AND MENTAL FATIGUE AFFECT FINE AND GROSS MANIPULATION TASKS? HARRY CHARLIER

The combination of thermal stress and mental fatigue and the effect that this has on an individual’s ability to perform manipulation tasks.

combination is due to previous research showing both parameters as separate factors having an effect on performance but not that they work together to cause an individual’s performance to decrease further.

The United Kingdoms armed forces constantly find their personnel in extreme environments. This was shown in Afghanistan where temperatures can range from 37°C to 7°C. These extreme environments have a profound effect on the human body and its ability to perform manipulation tasks. In addition to these conditions the Armed forces also face sleep deprivation and the constant strain of mental fatigue due to the long hours in the combat zone. The combination of these conditions can have significant effects on the performance of the soldiers in the field and their ability to make correct informed decisions. This can effect one’s ability to operate a fine manipulation task such as an unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or to setting up the launch device for missile strike.

The aim of this project is to research into the effects of thermal stress and mental fatigue on an individual’s ability to perform fine and gross manipulation tasks. The project was divided in six parameters containing a tests at 37°C, 7°C and a neutral environment test. These conditions are replicating the environmental conditions that the soldiers would be exposed to on a day to day basis in Afghanistan. Each of these conditions would be performed twice with the participant undergoing a mental fatigue test in one and being under no mental fatigue in the other. Before and after each test the participants would undergo fine and gross manipulation tasks that they would be scored on to evaluate their performance. These scores would display the effect of the conditions on the test subjects' fine and gross dexterity.

The effects of both mental fatigue and thermal stress on performance has had a large amount of research conducted. The consequences of mental fatigue and thermal stress include loss in motivation and a reduced ability to perform simple tasks. Combining both parameters to see the effects that they will have upon the user has not been attempted before. By addressing both performance inhibiting factors will enable solutions to be devised in order to improve a soldier’s performance in the field. The need for this

The research highlighted the profound effect that mental fatigue and environmental extremes had on an individual’s performance. This reduction in performance can cause the chance of human error to increase that could have serious consequences as a result. In addition to this solutions can easily be addressed by reducing the individual's work load can raise their work performance significantly causing the armed forces to be far more effective.

Using discount usability engineering and performance metrics to evaluate a website and implementing design improvements for usability comparison. With exponential global growth in the Internet, websites have become a vital tool for businesses to promote themselves, market their products and services and to broadcast information. Inevitably this has also given rise to electronic commerce and increased functionality that has challenged website usability. Consequently, as part of system acceptance, usability can be a significant problem as companies often target design aesthetics over usability appeal. Problems regarding functionality, navigation, content or design can cause difficulties and leave visitors confused, frustrated and unsatisfied. If these issues are not addressed, potential customers could feel negative about a business and go elsewhere. Therefore, creating and maintaining a usable website that promotes traffic and sales is now a key component to business success. Businesses are often unaware of the inherent value that superior usability brings in terms of reduced complexity, improved efficiency and enhanced user satisfaction and may consider it cost or time prohibitive to evaluate. Website interaction should be intuitive, with clear functionality and an easily understandable interface to enable the user to achieve their goals. The study demonstrates that evaluating and improving usability can be both an inexpensive and economically viable exercise to conduct despite business's limited usability knowledge.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the usability of an established B2B website to understand the problems users encounter and to redesign for improved usability. To facilitate this, Nielsen’s ‘Discount Usability Engineering’ approach was employed. A triangulation of techniques, consisting of a survey, heuristic evaluation, think-aloud user testing and task observation, satisfaction questionnaires and informal interviews provided a strong platform to identify a range of usability problems. Additionally, analysing numerous quantitative metrics with the aid of screen capture software enabled effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction to be assessed while the deliberately diverse experience of participants gave an indication of learnability. Initial analysis determined conformance with established criteria and objective goals and so, to identify user problems, qualitative observations and comments were cross-examined. Stemming from problem severity, recommendations for improvements were categorised in terms of priority, where high priority issues directly affecting usability were implemented within a redesign. Using a high-fidelity prototype and within-subjects design and utilising the same techniques as in the initial testing allowed comparison of results to determine if usability had been significantly improved. It was clear the redesign had improved every aspect of usability, and so incorporating these design changes would benefit all concerned, while repeating the evaluation and design process could further increase website usability. Ultimately, businesses should strive to achieve full system acceptability and usability must be considered a key factor in this task.

A comparison of different methods of transferring patients up a bed with respect to perceived effort and the amount of force needed.

3. Two Person Oblique Pull Up Bed- This used two participants, at each corner of the head of the bed. On the count ‘ready, steady, slide’ both participants take a step backwards keeping their arms straight.

Patient handling is a key component within the healthcare industry, not only in hospital and community settings but also when considering social care roles in peoples’ homes. Within patient handling, transfer tasks such as transferring a patient up a bed is a common activity, with carers and nurses completing this on a regular basis during their shifts.

4. Single Person Pull Up Bed- This used a single participant, at the head of the bed with hands shoulder width apart. When ready the participant steps backwards, keeping their arms straight.

Previous research has found that this, and other, patient transfer tasks can put the carers and nurses at risk of developing musculoskeletal injuries. Inappropriate transfer techniques can cause major problems for these carers and nurses both in the short term, due to the possibility of days off work, and long term, due to the accelerated development of back pain in the future. However incorrect patient transfer can also lead to significant clinical consequences through awkward patient handling and movement, including a negative impact on quality of care, patient safety and patient comfort. These factors combine to affect the immediate individuals taking part as well as the wider organisation, due to potential staff shortages and compensation claims. For this study a number of different conditions used to transfer a patient up a bed were developed, using both existing and new practices. These methods varied in terms of carer position in relation to the bed, the technique used and the number of carers involved. Four conditions were identified and used in the evaluation: 1. Parallel Stepping- This used two participants, one on either side of the bed, with hands at the shoulder and hip of the patient. On the count ‘ready, steady, slide’ both participants take a step up the bed sliding the patient along. 2. Rotation- This used two participants, one on either side of the bed with hands at the shoulder and hip of the patient. On the count ‘ready, steady, slide’ both participants turn towards the head of the bed, without moving the feet.

A total of 21 participants were used, 11 of which were experts within the patient handling and transfer area and 10 were novice participants. The study was conducted in specially set up laboratory within the Loughborough Design School, using a hospital bed, appropriate slide sheets and a weighted mannequin, ensuring the trial was as realistic as possible. Force meters were attached to relevant handles for each condition on a modified slide sheet; these were then attached to a calibrated amplifier, which was in turn connected to a laptop computer running a datalogger program called DASYLab. This program read the incoming signal and converted it to give the force exerted in kilograms, sampled at a rate of 20 Hz. Each transfer was repeated three times with the data gathered subsequently being processed in Microsoft Excel, giving the duration, peak force, average force and work done during each transfer. Subjective data was also collected through participants completing one of two review questionnaires depending on their experience level. The data collected was then analysed within the SPSS statistical program to find the total load per transfer, the individual load per transfer and the individual hand load. The aim of this study was to quantify and compare the four conditions, seeing if there was a statistical significance between the conditions in terms of the force required to transfer a patient up towards the head of the bed. Novice and expert participant data was also compared to see if the level of experience had an effect on the amount of force exerted per transfer. Finally, for individual hand loads, right versus left hand and hand closest to the head of the bed versus hand closest to the bottom of the bed were compared, giving an insight into whether the location of the hand affects the force exerted during the transfer.

Can usability heuristics developed solely for Voice User Interfaces help better identify application specific usability problems. During the last decade, there has been an explosion in the number of devices utilising ‘voice’ as the primary interface. Examples of these devices include the Amazon Echo, Intelligent personal assistants such as Siri, and vehicle hands-free systems. When designing these interfaces designers aim to ensure they are as usable as possible. Many methods exist to examine the usability of interfaces. However, the method of heuristic evaluation, first proposed by Jakob Nielsen, is particularly prevalent. Heuristic Evaluation utilises heuristics, in essence general rules of thumb which describe usable interfaces. Traditional heuristics, such as Nielsen’s, tend to be too generic. They were originally developed for desktop user interfaces and therefore their applicability to Voice User Interfaces (VUIs) is limited. The aim of this study was to define and then validate whether usability heuristics developed specifically for VUIs are better able to identify application specific usability problems when conducting heuristic usability evaluations and compared to using traditional usability heuristics such as those proposed by Nielsen. This was achieved initially by defining a new set of enhanced VUI heuristics. An existing methodology for defining application-specific heuristics was followed. In total eight enhanced VUI heuristics were defined. The enhanced VUI heuristics bore many similarities to Nielsen’s. However, the key difference was the language

used in the enhanced VUI heuristics which linked to the domain of VUIs more explicitly. Heuristics deemed not necessary for ‘voice’ were also removed and the introduction of specific VUI heuristics included. Once the enhanced VUI heuristics had been defined they were evaluated to measure their effectiveness. This was done through heuristic evaluation. Two groups of participants assumed the roles of usability experts, one group was provided with Nielsen’s traditional heuristics and the other group with the enhanced VUI heuristics. Participants were asked to complete a number of usage scenarios with three VUIs. Whilst doing this, the participants were required to use the heuristics provided to identify as many usability problems as possible. They were then asked to complete a short debrief questionnaire about their experience. From analysis of the data collected, it was identified that participants who were equipped with the enhanced VUI heuristics found statistically significantly more usability problems than those who used the traditional heuristics. Responses from the debrief questionnaire reinforced this, with participants voicing their views that the traditional heuristics were too “generalistic” and when equipped with the enhanced heuristics they found usability problems “they may otherwise have missed”. It is clear that the enhanced VUI heuristics defined within this study, with further iteration, will provide designers with a framework of principles enabling the design of more usable VUIs. This will ultimately provide VUI users with an improved and enhanced experience.

A research project which explores the accommodation of stature extremes in the design of current market vehicles. Aims: The first aim of this study is to determine if small and large vehicles are designed to accommodate people greater than 90th percentile and less than 10th percentile in stature. The second aim of the study is to assess driver safety to understand if vehicles are designed to be safe for drivers of extreme measurements. Methods: Qualitative and quantitative methods were used with the main method being in-car questionnaires. Physical measurements were taken in the vehicle along with anthropometric measurements Results: Graphical representation of the analysis shows trends seen within the data. However the sample size was too small to prove statistical significance. The analysis indicated that overall 10th percentile participants were more comfortable in the smaller vehicles and 90th percentiles more comfortable in the larger. The analysis also showed there was a slight trend in the data indicating females were more comfortable in all size vehicles but especially in the smaller vehicles; albeit without significant correlation. Importantly, the data also raised some vehicle safety

issues. Firstly, some participants sat too close to the steering wheel. Secondly, in smaller vehicles, 90th percentiles had difficulty seeing out of the windscreen due to interference from the sun visor. Thirdly,10th percentiles had difficulty with rear view visibility, with concern that they would not be able to detect the presence of small objects e.g. a child if behind the car. Conclusions: The research and analysis showed no statistical significance between 10th and 90th percentile comfort and vehicle size but it indicated that: 1) 10th percentile individuals were more comfortable and catered for in all size vehicles than 90th percentiles 2) 10th percentile users sit very close to the steering wheel, 3 in 10 participants sat at, or just below, the recommended distance. 3) 90th percentile participants found movement difficult in the smaller vehicles 4) Females were more comfortable than males across the range of vehicles, evidenced by male's feedback dwelling more on negatives. The lack of statistical significance does not show a lack of importance. However to gain better understanding an in depth study with a larger sample is needed.

THE ROLE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL FACTORS ON SUB-CLINICAL DECOMPRESSSION OUTCOMES

KIERAN LITTLE

BSc (Hons) ERGONOMICS (HUMAN FACTORS DESIGN) +44 (0) 7859 211 828 kieran.little.1994@gmail.com

Decompression Illness (DCI) is a potentially severe condition and a limiting factor for many from trainee scuba-divers to astronauts. DCI, or the bends as it is more commonly known, is a disease that has been scientifically observed for nearly 400 years, and is the result of an abrupt decrease in environmental pressure whilst breathing inert gases such as the nitrogen in air. Various models have been suggested to explain how these inert gases cause symptoms, but to this day there is still disagreement over the actual mechanism by which these inert gases act to disrupt body processes. Relying on this imperfect understanding of how we are affected by changes in pressure is obviously problematic, as populations of divers increase year-on-year, as well as the rise of unpressurised aircraft flight as a hobby, through to the potential for flights ‘to the edge of space’. This population invariably includes those who are less tolerant to this decompressions stress, whether due to illness, lack of fitness or just population variance. This project sought to gain further insight into whether there are commonalities in either psychological or physiological factors between those who are pre-clinically symptomatic of decompression illness after short duration exposure to hyperbaric conditions, and those who are not. To do this, a new system was developed and piloted to assess a sub-clinical influence of the disease, unlike earlier systems that purposefully exposed participants to dangerous exposures to ‘bend’ them. Trainees from the Loughborough Students Union Sub-Aqua Club volunteered to be assessed during the training dives they undertook to become certified divers. They were measured in areas such as their perfusion, where oxygenated and deoxygenated blood flow was measured, as well as their saturation of oxygen, and the accompanying concentrations of oxyhaemoglobin. Other cardiovascular factors such as heart rate and blood pressure were monitored, as well as flow of blood to the extremities. Participants also completed questionnaires to assess their mood state (how fatigued, confused and tired they were), as well as their frustration and concerns about their performance. Standard hyperbaric exposures were then completed

192

LOUGHBOROUGH DESIGN SCHOOL

on the training dives by each trainee, completing a dive to 15m for a time of 25 minutes, well within ‘no decompression’ limits of traditional models. Afterwards the participants were assessed using the sub-clinical DCI measures developed, as well as re-examining their mood and quantifying how hard they had exerted themselves in different areas (physically, mentally, temporally), and how well they felt they had performed. Each measure was then correlated against the subclinical DCI ‘score’ for each participant to assess if there were any factors which predicted higher levels of decompression stress (for instance a higher or lower perfusion value, or change in perfusion over time, giving rise to greater displays of symptoms). Correlations were found for the effort individuals felt they had expressed on the dive, as well as the fatigue they felt after the dive. These measures would be expected based on the theory of traditional decompression models. More interesting correlations were found in the systolic blood pressures of the participants, as well as their oxygen saturations and the concentrations of blood cells. The conclusions we can draw from this study suggest that there are underlying factors of the cardiovascular system that influence decompression stress, and therefore decompression outcomes. Current models use a probabilistic adaptation to add safety, so the development of a decompression model that used an accurate model of the mechanics of decompression would improve decompression understanding, even if it did not statistically improve safety. A model that could make use of individual factors such as resting systolic blood pressure could greatly improve safety as this can be tracked easily both before and during a dive. Further research should look to expand the sample size used in this study, as due to low participation it could not be considered to represent the wider population. Corroboration of the findings however would suggest that further testing of cardiovascular factors should be considered as a suitable future path for decompression research.

THE EFFECT OF SPOKEN FEEDBACK ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF TRUST BETWEEN A DRIVER AND AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE CAMERON McINTYRE

BSc (Hons) ERGONOMICS (HUMAN FACTORS DESIGN) c.j.mcintyre-14@student.lboro.ac.uk

Is trust in a vehicle affected by the amount of feedback received? Advances in technology and artificial intelligence (AI) have meant that over the last 20 years, incredible leaps have been made towards “fully autonomous vehicles�. This is a phrase commonly associated with a vehicle that can drive from point-to-point with no requirement for human interaction during the journey and is known as Level 4 Autonomy in industry. Small changes have been incrementally added to conventional vehicles, such as built-in GPS, adaptive cruise control (ACC) and parking assistance systems, which have increased autonomy and decreased the human involvement in driving. However, before fully autonomous vehicles can be commercially viable and safely drive on public roads, there are numerous human factors issues that require investigation. One such issue is the level of trust between humans and autonomous vehicles and how this is established and developed. This study seeks to explore the notion that trust between humans and autonomous vehicles develops and changes according to the level of spoken feedback the driver receives.

vehicles, and that it can play a key role in driver error. However, whether trust and feedback have a direct relationship is yet to be fully researched. The importance of understanding this is greater than ever, as it may become the only link between a driver or passenger and their autonomous vehicle. The study design saw participants seated in a mock-up driving simulator which displayed driving situations through video data presentation. As the participants were watching the videos, they were requested to imagine that they were seated in a level 4 autonomous vehicle. They received different levels of spoken feedback depending on the group they were assigned to. Following each video each participant recorded their feelings towards the autonomous system through a trust scale. They were also video recorded for further analysis as to the way they reacted to different situations. The study was highly successful and several theories emerged during the analysis of the results which have strong implications in industry. It will also be followed up by further projects to build on the results and deepen the understanding of driver trust and feedback.

Several studies have shown that feedback provides an essential connection between drivers and their

Accuracy and speed of interpreting HTA diagrams were improved using a set of graphical notation principles and 4 studies in a mixed methods approach. Hierarchical task analysis (HTA) is a widely used Human Factors/Ergonomics (HFE) tool that was introduced in the 1960s. It is used for breaking down complex tasks for a number of purposes, including interface design and human error prediction. It can be represented in a graphical or a tabular format, each view providing its own benefits. The tabular depiction has had many developments since the tool’s inception, but despite a large body of research on visual representation of information over the past half-century, there has been little attempt to improve the graphical syntax of HTA. Multiple studies have also shown that novices have difficulty internalising the nature of the hierarchy. Well-designed graphical notations have the advantage over textual information that many of their features can be processed perceptually, allowing for easier and faster inferences. The ‘plan’, a very important part of HTA that describes the sequence of tasks (e.g. “do A then B then C”, or “do A then, if X is true, do B, otherwise do C”), is only presented textually, missing out on this potential. HTA stakeholders - HFE practitioners - were included from the start of this research. Study 1 aimed to contextualise HTA by finding out about the people using it, what they were using it for, and what they thought could be improved. 22 participants from many domains across the industry provided detailed answers to a set of 12 questions and the responses were analysed for common themes. The graphical format of HTA was largely used for communication, both within teams and to non-HFE task experts (e.g. healthcare staff). The importance of understanding the task structure/hierarchy was stated. Most stakeholders in the research wanted notation for visualising plans (highlighting task ordering and decision points). Bearing in mind the findings from Study 1, a set of graphical principles (based on theories of communication, semiotics, visual perceptual and cognition) was used to analyse the existing notation. Two new notations were created to improve on it. For Study 2, 6 participants unfamiliar with HTA were shown the two new notations and the original in a random order, and provided their interpretation of what was shown. A fourth notation was created based

198

2017

LOUGHBOROUGH DESIGN SCHOOL

on their feedback, which was preferred overall. This notation was used for the remainder of the project. Example HTA diagrams were created in traditional and revised notations for the task of making scrambled eggs on toast. A questionnaire was created for Study 3 to empirically test understanding of the task diagrams, and was piloted to ensure the questions were of an appropriate level. 29 of the 2nd year Ergonomics students participated, having received two lectures on HTA (in its traditional form). Statistically significant improvements were found for the number of questions answered correctly (particularly for tasks that may or may not occur) and for the time taken per correct answer. Ease ratings (with one notable exception) were either equal or lower for the revised notation, regardless of higher scores. This was considered to be due to the increased visual complexity, decreased familiarity and increased representation of task difficulty: some participants with the traditional notation marked questions at the maximum level of ease despite getting them entirely or mostly wrong. HFE practitioners were approached again to provide an expert evaluation for Study 4. The tested revisions to the notation, as well as a number of untested suggestions were presented for their feedback. The response was mostly positive: some practitioners said they would use all or some of the elements presented; others said they would use it if there were appropriate software, or if it could be adopted by their team/department; some said they would not, either happy with their current notation, or because they do not use graphical representations in their work. The feedback also included comments on specific notational elements, either strengthening their support, suggesting alternatives, or cautioning against facilitating complexity. One major change was suggested that should reduce visual noise and provide better cueing for which task sequences are complex (and so require more attention), while maintaining a level of expressiveness and clarity. This project provides two main contributions to the existing body of literature: a more complete picture of how HFE practitioners use HTA, and a number of suggestions for improvements to its graphical notation, to be built upon in the future. It also adds to the growing set of examples demonstrating the importance of graphical notation, where subtle changes can have significant consequences.

A user centred design study on the virtual learning environment used at Loughborough University on a mobile device. With the reliance on mobile phones on the increase with the younger generation many institutions have implemented the provision of learning resources on such devices. However, the manner of which these information ‘hubs’ are formatted to suit mobile devices is often done so in a way which makes the users experience with them frustrating. This project initiated with the distribution of online surveys to a large range of students. With the questions asked being open, it allowed for detailed and representative responses, which in a large scale enabled those ideas deemed important to be accumulated and put into an ‘order’ of importance. With the feedback suggesting that certain aspects present on the VLE used at the university are incorporated poorly, this gave justification to start usability tests of the system. The usability testing session took place using participants who were familiar with the current Learn system, however ranged in experience as this embodied the student population in a more realistic way. With tasks set for them to complete, these tests were timed, and monitored to recognise the window/screens present (user journey/pathway), as well as the number of errors accounted for.

Following on from this study, a focus group was arranged, to create an in-depth discussion about issues and experiences students have with the current system, and any ideas or recommendations they had for the redesign. Once enough feedback and collected data provided justification for various improvements, the redesign phase took place. Wireframe testing was conducted on a small number of participants, which indicated what icons and layout aspects were recognisable by the user, and therefore were acceptable to consider. A higher-fidelity version was then mocked up on Axure RP, a prototyping tool used to create websites and applications, enabling the simulation of navigational features and interactive points. This version, created as a mobile application, was then tested using a usability study, as previously devised on the current version. The time it took the participants to complete the tasks given to them was roughly one third of the time it took them to complete them on the current version. As well as this, the number of obstructing and unnecessary screens that are present on the system have been made minimal, thus correlating to the time it took participants to complete the tasks.

Does a warmer body impair or enhance thermal sensitivity? The aim of this study was to understand the relationship between increasing whole body temperature and local thermal sensitivity to a probe of varying temperature, applied in a dose dependent fashion. In this study eight participants, four males and four females were assessed. Each participant took part in two conditions. In the whole body heating condition 50°C temperature water was perfused through a thermal suit and on the other occasion 30° temperature water was used as a neutral condition. During the trials a thermosensory test was conducted whereby participants rated their perceived thermal sensation of five different temperature stimuli (± 8°C and ± 4°C from a baseline neutral of 30°C, including 30°C) applied to the back of the left hand. This thermosensory test was conducted before water was perfused through the suit, then every 10 minutes thereafter and then 10 minutes after a ‘cooling down’ period. The whole body heating protocol resulted in large increases in whole body, Tsk: 0 min: 33.08 ± 1.01°C (95% CI = 32.24 to 33.93), 10 minutes: 35.84 ± 0.82°C (95% CI = 35.15 to 36.52), 20 minutes: 37.41 ± 0.68°C (95% CI = 36.84 to 37.97) and 30 minutes: 37.69 ± 0.69°C (95% CI = 37.11 to 38.27) with no changes in rectal temperature over time (p=0.723).

2017

LOUGHBOROUGH DESIGN SCHOOL

It was found that participants were less sensitive to skin warming during the whole body warming condition, so when Tsk increased, thermosensitivity to local skin warming from the probe decreased. However, thermosensitivity to local skin cooling remained unchanged. For the 34°C stimuli probe there was a significant difference between the two conditions (F=8.724, p=0.005) and the same for the 38°C stimuli (F=15.859, p=0.0001) with participants rating the stimuli less warm in the whole body heating condition. This identifies a new feature of human temperature integration whereby whole body thermal states have an impact upon local thermal sensitivity. This research has increased the understanding of human thermosensory integration and has highlighted areas in which research could be beneficial. These observations could be relevant in terms of occupational performance, such as military and fire service personnel where hand function under cold and heat stress within extreme environments is important. It may also play a role within the workplace looking at ways to improve thermal comfort through the application of local heating or cooling of the skin.

The project looked into the barriers to inclusion identified by elderly users of rail stations and design improvements which could be made.

the problems faced by the elderly were compared with the ideal scenario of their railway station usage and recommendations made to mitigate or minimise the gap.

There are now more people aged over 65 than under 18 in the UK and in total the over 65s make up 11.6 million of the population. Maintaining independence in all aspects of life, particularly the freedom to travel, is a foremost priority for many older people as it allows them to conduct social engagements, fulfill essential tasks from shopping to medical needs and continue exploring new places.

Data was gathered from the questionnaires (n = 84) and interviews (n = 12). It was found that 90% of those aged over 65 would consider themselves as having impairments. From the questionnaire, 44% reported problems with accessibility at railway stations, 54% reported problems with information interpretation and 54% reported problems with navigation. Issues found with fellow railway users were less prevalent with 39% of respondents feeling they had a problem in this area. The interviews highlighted the importance of maintaining independence into older age and the problems of accessibility, information interpretation and navigation that the participants were affected by.

As older people may lack the confidence or capability to continue driving, public transport can become increasingly important. The widereaching rail network can provide a fast, simple and cost effective transportation means. However, as humans age they encounter an increasing number of physical, sensory, cognitive and social problems that can restrict their railway usage. The goal of the project was to improve the provision of UK railway stations for older users. Firstly, a literature review was undertaken to identify common impairments of the elderly. A Hierarchical Task Analysis was used to break the process down into independent tasks which must be completed to utilise the service. Following this, data was gathered from elderly users of railway stations through a combination of questionnaires and interviews to understand the current experiences of older users and identify problems they face. Finally,

Overall, it is clear that older people are not prevented from using the rail network due to design, however there are barriers to them being fully included and further work is required to establish design changes which would limit the problems faced by elderly users of rail stations in the UK. A set of short and long term recommendations produced from the project aim to improve the experience quality for elderly users of railway stations.

BRIEF SIGN IN ‘Before the induction of anaesthesia’

TIME OUT ‘Before the incision of the skin’

The National Health Service is highly complex due to the wide variety of medical professionals working together in multidisciplinary teams. However, due to the nature of the service, surgery is considered to be an unavoidably hazardous process with an underlying scope for human error.

SIGN OUT

As part of the World Health Organisation's 'Patient Safety Challenge', a Surgical Safety Checklist was introduced and implemented across hospitals worldwide. It is believed that safety checks could be more reliable when a standardised five-phase process could be followed. Undertaking briefs and debriefs were found to enhance team performance, reduce the amount of delays and improve safety climate.

‘Before the patient leaves the operating theatre’

Surgical debriefing is the process of reviewing the outcomes in theatre after surgery. It is a simple way for the operating team to discuss vital information about the patient, the procedure and any safety related issues. It has been found to improve technical performance, reduce adverse events and ensure clinically relevant learning in operating theatres.

Despite a great effort to increase awareness, medical errors continue to occur more frequently than is considered reasonably acceptable.

The specialities included Consultant Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Registrars, Nurses, Practitioners and Team Leaders. Additionally, five debriefs were observed to establish the current practices adopted by the hospital. The results from this study were then reviewed and used to generate a set of safety recommendations to enhance future debriefing procedures. This research highlighted several barriers to successful debrief implementation which could be categorised as either cultural barriers, organisational and procedural barriers, or design barriers. Cultural recommendations included: training and educating staff; ensuring effective communication; encouraging leadership; and minimising the authority gradient. Organisational and procedural propositions included monitoring non-compliance, ensuring follow-up post debrief and allocating a specific time for debrief. The requirement for a consistent debrief structure with appropriate content concluded the design barriers. The study concluded that there are a number of ways in which Birmingham Children’s Hospital can develop and improve debriefing practices within operating theatres in the hope that human performance can be enhanced to assure patient safety in a safety critical environment.

An app for people with diabetes was designed and evaluated to investigate how the visualisation of therapy patterns could influence user trust.

AWARDS

‘17 Diploma in Professional Studies

People living with type 1 diabetes are currently required to manage their blood glucose levels within a safe range each day. In order to achieve this, they are required to monitor their blood glucose levels and administer insulin multiple times each day. Diabetes management can create a great deal of stress often resulting in mistakes. For example, forgetting to test blood glucose levels or administering an incorrect insulin dose. Fortunately, many devices are available to people with diabetes helping them to manage the disease. However, they are still required to review their blood glucose data on a frequent basis to search for trends and patterns in their data, allowing the implementation of therapy improvements. A pattern recognition solution embedded in a mobile application could help users find trends in their data on a daily basis and provide recommendations to improve therapy. Recommendations could be made, for instance, regarding when best to exercise during the day or how much insulin to give when eating certain types of food. Yet people living with type 1 diabetes have made decisions regarding their diabetes management since being diagnosed with the disease. As a result, distrust could develop towards diabetes based recommendations being made for them when using a pattern recognition

system. Therefore it was decided to investigate how the visualisation of diabetes patterns and recommendations could influence user trust. An application utilising pattern detection was designed based upon interviews and additional human-centered design methods. User interviews highlighted that with use of current diabetes management systems, a great deal of time and care is required to search for patterns and trends in data not to mention that once trends had been discovered they would need to be turned into therapy improvements which are often carried out with the patients’ health care team. Following on from the initial evaluation the pattern recognition and recommendation mobile application designs were evaluated with people with diabetes and redesigned to improve visualisations. Feedback regarding the design found that in order for users to develop trust in the system, therapy recommendations required a visual component in addition to text explaining how the pattern was found and how the therapy recommendation had been made. Furthermore, the overall personality of the application was discovered to be important relating to trust, taking into account the visual aesthetics and the tone of the text. On the other hand, feedback indicated that distrust could arise, caused by usability issues, resulting in confusion or frustration towards the application.

INVESTIGATION INTO THE DIFFICULTIES FACED FOR CYCLISTS WHEN USING SELF TAUGHT GUIDELINES MATTHEW WEBSTER

What are the difficulties faced for cyclists when using guidelines? This project aimed to investigate the effectiveness of guidelines for cyclist's saddle set up, whilst evaluating if different guides (books, online resources and videos) provide consensual information or if the range of information causes confusion. These findings allowed the production of a single guide containing all the relevant information, including areas participants felt were missing or inaccurate in current resources. The study was split into three forms of analysis. First an expert appraisal was conducted in which ten popular guidelines were chosen and assessed as to what was good and bad about them via a predetermined checklist. In addition a commentary was provided on various aspects in which the guides were felt to be lacking, such as layout or various methods of deriving saddle height. The second study gathered 15 participants (2 females, 13 males) between the ages of 18 and 54 within three set age categories (18-24, 35-44, 45-54).

All of the participants were cyclists that cycled at least once a week. The participants were interviewed to collect quantitative data about their background in cycling, and the problems they faced when setting up their bike saddle whilst also collecting measurements regarding inseam measurements and stature. The final study took three popular methods that allowed cyclists to determine their correct saddle height and apply these to ten participants’ inseam measurement and stature to derive the calculated saddle height and seek understanding of whether any of these methods were actually significant via a Wilcoxon test. These results were analysed in SPSS, NVivo and Excel to understand similarities and differences so that a revised and modified guideline could be developed. The study developed a user friendly bike saddle setup guide containing all relevant and accurate information, whilst contributing to knowledge in understanding inclusive design across current guide lines and associated problems derived from poor saddle setup.

INVESTIGATING THE PREVALENCE AND EFFECTS OF DISTRACTIONS AND INTERRUPTIONS IN SURGERY EMILY WOOLMER

Distractions and interruptions can feature heavily during surgical procedures and could potentially impede on safety and performance. Surgery is often considered as a fairly high risk procedure with a huge range of influencing factors that can affect the likelihood and severity of the risk. Some factors are beyond the control of hospital staff, such as the age and fitness of a patient. However, there are also a number of factors that can be considered, tackled and improved upon, particularly those which may influence quality of performance, task focus or error likelihood. Distractions and interruptions can play a big role in influencing the quality of work; they can be defined as any stimulus which removes focus from the primary task, so could include environmental noise, conversation or equipment failures. A human factors / systems ergonomics approach to analysing distractions and interruptions in surgery enables research to be more comprehensive. This project has consisted of reviewing the types and prevalence of distractions and interruptions, as well as the psychological effects in terms of behaviour, performance and any physiological or design issues. Research was carried out at the Royal Free Hospital, London and Chase Farm Hospital, Enfield. It consisted of surveys for surgical staff and observations of a variety of different types of surgical procedures. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected. Prior to data collection, it was assumed that all distractions and interruptions would have a negative effect on

212

2017

LOUGHBOROUGH DESIGN SCHOOL

quality of work. However, the results showed some interesting, and somewhat unexpected, findings. It became clear that nearly all varieties of distractions and interruptions have some sort of effect on work in operating theatres. Some effects can be considered to be largely positive, such as teaching or feedback noises from machines. Some effects have more of a neutral effect, or can be deemed positive or negative depending on how they occur, for example, phone calls that deliver pertinent patient information or irrelevant conversation. Of all the distractions and interruptions reviewed as part of the questionnaires and observations, those which had the most established negative effects included equipment failures and people entering and exiting the room without purpose. Due to the complex nature of healthcare service delivery, it is not possible to fully predict or remove all potential distractions and interruptions. However, improving understanding among staff in how distractions and interruptions occur and why they may contribute to error could prove to be productive. Additionally, working with staff to improve, through encouraging a proactive and logical approach, how distractions and interruptions are dealt with when they do arise could be helpful. This project has shown that improving the understanding of systems issues, supporting staff development and making changes to practices to reduce negative distractions would appear to a good method in improving all round performance and safety.

The device uses airflow which is generated around the space of the outer shell of the helmet to be dragged into its vents located at either side. This allows fast pressurised air to enter the device where the air is cooled down.

Air is dispersed through specifically designed evacuation holes which evenly expels the cool air surrounding the upper back of the motorcyclist. The cool air travels within the motorcyclist's suit as he/she is travelling.

02

Cool air is aerodynamically pressurised when it enters the product's vents, from here the air is transported via external pumps attached to the vents and dragged down to the lower section of the device where the cool pressurised air can exit within the users suit.

Settle is a wearable that monitors noise levels in the environment. Six inbuilt microphones evaluate noise and filter it depending on the user’s preference: to block all noise, or allow desired sounds through. Noise cancellation is added to existing headphones by monitoring noise in the environment and generating anti-noise to cancel out the noise pollution. The inbuilt microphones in Settle determine the direction, frequency, and volume of the noise, and categorise it as speech, birdsong, music, alarms or announcements. The user can then select which sounds to allow through by turning the dial.
