Cognitive Engineering Laboratory
A leading center for cognitive engineering research, training and solutions.
The Cognitive Engineering Laboratory (CEL) conducts applied research on how to introduce information technology into complex work environments so that the prerequisites for an effective feedback control system can be satisfied.
The CEL, the Human Factors and Applied Statistics Laboratory (HFASt), the Ergonomics in Teleoperation and Control Laboratory (ETC), and the Interactive Media Lab (IML), comprise the University of Toronto's Human Factors Research Group. All four labs are located in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering.
This website provides a comprehensive view of the past and present work conducted at the CEL and the people responsible for its success. Any questions or comments on the material presented here can be emailed to Dr. Greg A. Jamieson, Director of the Cognitive Engineering Laboratory.
Developing novel use cases for mobile implementation of Distributed Control System (DCS) by applying adaptive automation to support knowledge workers. We will investigate the impact of adaptive human-machine interfaces on task efficacy, ease of use, operator acceptance, and development and maintenance of operator expertise.
Investigating the impact of automated systems on combat identification, specifically automatic target detection.
Developing an adaptive system for determining appropriate level of detail (LOD) views for network systems and attack graphs, in order to improve situation awareness under cyber attack conditions.
