Research

HCC conducts research on 

  • Interaction design
  • Mobility
  • Visualisation and human control of systems
  • User experience
  • Value-driven software engineering
  • Sustainable use of energy
  • Application of machine intelligence
  • Engineering big data applications
  • Smart city
  • Digitalization
  • Interaction with sound
  • Agile software engineering

Concrete research  

The human-centered computing objective integrates a strong element of empirical research involving people. One part of the empirical research is experimental in the form of design, construction, and evaluation of interactive prototypes to explore and solve
specific problems.

Another part is directed at the professionalization of systems and software development. This takes place through close collaboration with companies in improving their working practice and encompassing agile processes and the integration of agile development, usability engineering, and interaction design
