Assistive Technologies in Working Environments
Which new opportunities does technological change open up? What does the “workplace of the future” look like?
The conference „uDay XVI – Assistive Technologies in Working Environments“ at the University of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg addressed these questions and presented the current state of research and developed solutions. We answered these questions to experts from industry, research and students.
Requirements of the working world
The working world, and industrial production in particular, is undergoing one of the greatest upheavals since the Industrial Revolution. Digitisation, automation, virtualisation and real-time processing require different and in some cases more mentally demanding qualifications from working people than ever. At the same time, the same principles and technologies also offer the opportunity of providing workers with comprehensive support for these new requirements.
Science and practice
The mission of research and industry is to identify, develop and optimise the possibilities for assistance from a technological and process-oriented perspective. The uDay XVI at the FH Vorarlberg was therefore dedicated to the present state and current solutions in the relevant research domains. At Schindler Creations, we live the link between science and practice, and at the Usability Day, the two of them met.
