Human factors and ergonomics in interactions with sustainable appliances and devices

Human factors and ergonomics in interactions with sustainable appliances and devices
Human factors and ergonomics in interactions with sustainable appliances and devices
This chapter offers a much-needed perspective of the human factors considerations when exploring interactions with sustainable appliances and devices. Using the central heating system as a case study, this chapter highlights the core issues and provides key recommendations for practitioners, designers, and policy makers interested in the important area of sustainable interaction design. By providing an overview of the literature and an example of design application to illustrate the theory, this chapter makes a strong case for adopting a mental models approach to design within a system of systems perspective.

Abstract

This chapter offers a much-needed perspective of the human factors considerations when exploring interactions with sustainable appliances and devices. Using the central heating system as a case study, this chapter highlights the core issues and provides key recommendations for practitioners, designers, and policy makers interested in the important area of sustainable interaction design. By providing an overview of the literature and an example of design application to illustrate the theory, this chapter makes a strong case for adopting a mental models approach to design within a system of systems perspective.
