Usability engineering in critical contexts

Life-critical contexts, such as medicine, aviation, dangerous goods, crisis management, etc. pose particular challenges for usability engineers, interaction designers, and system architects. Any product that will be used in these contexts, no matter how simple and non-life-threatening, has the potential to add one more link in a disastrous chain of events. Through shocking, powerful real-life examples, this talk will make your audience aware of usability and design challenges and will show them methods to successfully navigate the treacherous traps on the way to successful product designs.
