HFC specialises in designing and configuring technical systems and software interfaces in terms of usability, product experience, acceptance and safety. With an interdisciplinary team that brings together expertise from psychology, engineering, mathematics and computer science, problems of hardware and software adaptation to humans are solved.

These include the evaluation of assistance systems in the vehicle and the investigation of fatigue measurability. Our customers come from the automotive, railway and aerospace industries as well as the departments of safety and medical equipment.

The basis of the work at HFC is a high methodological competence − not only in human scientific and technical fields, but especially in interdisciplinary collaboration. Thus, the different questions of human-technology design can be handled for all domain applications. They range from the analysis of safety vulnerabilities over developing services such as GUI design or user guidance, to long-term research projects in occupational health and safety, and road safety.
