Augmented reality system uses GPS to improve user experience

Mizzou Engineers have developed a more advanced augmented reality system that uses indoor GPS tracking to better position objects with the user’s physical space.

Optimal break times improve work performance, study shows

Workers who perform routine tasks do so faster and with fewer errors if they take breaks at the right times, a Mizzou Engineering team has found.

Improving Workflow in an Intensive Care Unit

Jung Hyup Kim, associate professor in Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, is investigating how to help nurses spend more time with patients who need extra care, especially in a hectic ICU environment.

Study: Drivers Experience Four Levels of Attentive ‘Gaze’ in Response to Alerts From Pre-crash Warning Systems

A team of engineers at the University of Missouri conducted open road testing of three collision avoidance systems and demonstrated that a drivers’ visual behavior in response to an alert generated from a collision avoidance system can be divided into one of four different behavioral categories: active gaze, self-conscious gaze, attentive gaze and ignored gaze.

Mizzou research aims to improve driver alerts through science

If researchers can predict how drivers will react, they can better tailor systems either broadly or potentially to individual motorists. Mizzou Engineering Assistant Professor Jung Hyup Kim’s research opens the door to potentially creating a more interactive system.

Quick eyes can show level of situational awareness, MU study shows

Oil refinery safety technicians, air traffic controllers, security guards, TSA agents, nuclear power plant safety techs — these jobs and more are key to our safety. And all require the ability to monitor loads of information and adjust to any abnormal signals, which makes understanding their awareness and effectiveness in real time critical to public safety. Mizzou Engineering’s Jung Hyup Kim just discovered a way to do just that.
