Human Factors Engineering (HFE)

Drones are everywhere. They deliver packages, monitor fields, track wildlife, and record sporting events. But when the drone is out of sight, it is too easy to lose sight of everything else. Human factors engineering (HFE) helps us think about all the ways that people affect drones and helps us design drones that are safe for humans and environments alike. This service includes ergonomic and aesthetic factors. We use these to influence the design of products, systems, and environments.

Our human factors engineering services include ergonomic and aesthetic factors. We use these to influence the design of products, systems, and environments.

Human factors engineering is the essence of good design and the key to creating user-friendly products, systems, and environments. There are three steps involved in developing a successful product: ergonomics, human-machine interaction, and aesthetics. At Innovolo, we offer human factors services throughout all stages of design – from conceptual research to strategy development to prototype design and implementation. This involves the fusion of the Innovolo creativity, manufacturing expertise, and customer interaction skills. With our human factors knowledge and experience – backed by science – we can help our customers develop products that fit their needs.

Our human factors experts apply analysis to a vast range of applications.

This could include aeroplane cockpits or factory control rooms. Using statistics, trends, and "human-scale" models, we look at the ergonomic requirements of the person in the design.

What is the most efficient way for them to use a product or interact with equipment? We can help you improve safety, comfort, and productivity in any working environment.

Our team produces designs that better meet the capabilities, limitations, and needs of the people who use them.  

In this service, we work with: 

  • Industrial designers 
  • UX designers 
  • Design engineers.  

Not only does this service improve the user experience for your clients, but it can also help prevent injuries and user error.

placeholder - Innovolo Product Development and Design - Innovation-as-a-Service

What an easy experience! The product developed so fast and so trouble-free – I could snap my fingers, and it was done. Made me feel like a magician – until I saw the bill at the end of the month. That’s when I realised how much work had gone on behind the scenes. For the future, I will be watching the costs a bit closer – it’s just too easy to rack up big bills. To be fair, this was very transparent, and I had visibility of those costs all the way through – I just didn’t look at it, that’s all.

Having said that, the product is pretty well finished – so we can get it launched earlier than I thought possible. So maybe those costs were a good investment, because we all know how valuable it is to be the first to market.
