A Kinesiology Graduate Colloquium will be held on Friday, Oct. 18 at 10:30 a.m. in the Kinesiology building, 208.

Dr. Wayne J. Albert will present, 'Ships, Helicopters and Automobiles: Transportation Vehicles as the Working Environment.'

Automobiles, trucks, buses, ships and helicopters are not only modes of transportation, but also serve as a working environment for a substantial number of people.  Different transportation vehicles provide specific ergonomic and human factors challenges.  This presentation explores a number of consultancy and research projects representing a combination of laboratory and field-based approaches that address physical and cognitive demands associated with working on or operating these vehicles.  Many of the laboratory-based projects incorporate the use of vehicle simulators to better provide ecological validity of the working environment for assessment purposes.

All are welcome.
