Tina Koohnavard

Projektledare forskning at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Design and Human Factors

Tina is working on a research project in collaboration with Volvo GTT, which involves studying truck drivers’ behavior and how this is influenced by design features inside the cabin such as placement of visual information and indirect vision, as well as the traffic environment outside the cabin. More specifically, she focuses on how radical changes – such as placement of HMI and camera monitor systems – affect truck drivers postural pattern. The primary goal of the project is to develop new and improved layouts in the truck environment in order to increase safety and wellbeing. Tina is also involved in a research project in collaboration with Volvo Cars where principles and prototypes for controlling the interaction between driver and vehicle are developed and tested in short iteration cycles. The goal of the project is to generate the design principles, test methods and prototypes necessary to concretely understand what constitutes good HMI design for automated vehicles.
