Jeff Hoyle, MS, CPE, and Director of Ergonomics Services will present the webinar “Emerging Technologies: The Future of Ergonomics” on November 18, 2020 from 3:00-4:00 PM EST. The webinar is sponsored by the North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Education and Research Center.
About the Webinar:
The field of ergonomics is rapidly changing. Emerging technologies such as exoskeletons, wearable sensors, computer-vision, artificial intelligence, and virtual and augmented reality are being integrated into how companies & ergonomists provide services. From design, to training, to assessments, to solution implementation, these new technologies can help companies optimize business performance. This presentation will provide a “high-level” overview of this topic and will provide some insights into the future of our field of ergonomics (from a practitioners perspective).
At the completion of this activity, the learner will be able to:
- Review the history and limitations of traditional ergonomics practices and methods
- Describe emerging technologies (exoskeletons, wearable sensors, computer-vision, virtual and augmented
reality) being developed and used for ergonomics applications
- Discuss the future direction of ergonomics
