|Abstract: ||This paper details the development of our computer based design tool: HADRIAN. Developed to address the
area of user accommodation within design and in
particular the support for ‘design for all’, HADRIAN
provides an integrated database and analysis system.
The data element of HADRIAN is an attempt to simplify
the understanding and use of ergonomics data by the
design community in addition to encouraging empathy
with the end user. Anthropometry and functional abilities
were collected from 100 individuals many of whom are
older or have some form of disability. In addition,
behavioural data was collected from the individuals
performing common tasks associated with daily living
and the use of transport. The individuals in the
database effectively form a virtual user group that can
then be used to investigate and evaluate a concept
design of a product, or environment through a task
analysis feature. Further developments for the
HADRIAN tool also include an inclusive journey planner
that allows individual travellers, or transport planners to
evaluate the inclusiveness of a particular route.
Together this package of tools provides a richer, more
accessible set of data for human modelling and
ergonomics design, and a means to assess the
inclusiveness of a product, environment, or journey.|
