What is Engineering psychology? Psychological approach to the solution of technical problems. Engineering Psychology is mutidisciplinary science. Engineering Psychology is concerned with adapting the equipment and environment to people, based upon their psychological capacities and limitations (Blum, 1952) Roots: –Army psychology –Ergonomics –Transportation psychology –Personnel psychology –Experimental psychology
Problems nuclear industry (Černobyl, Three Mile Island ) munitions factories (First World War) aviation (altimeter - misreading error ) transportation ( speed merchant ) Creative design (inventions, innovations) Human resources Testing - Selecting Training Adaptation of technical equipments to human operator Artificial intelligence (MAS, UNS)
