Mohamed Abdel-Wahab is a Senior Lecturer in Construction Engineering. He has 10+ years' experience in applied research projects supporting the digital transformation of the construction industry for enhancing training and practice. Projects include VR for Health and Safety training, Motion-sensing (IoT) for occupational health management, Mixed Reality for construction training, and developing digital workflows for the repair and maintenance sector.
Graham Scott is a cyberpsychologist. His research interests' centers around the utilization of social media and include online impression formation, perceptions of cyberbullying, and online employability. He is currently leading an international ERASMUS+ project to develop an app to track and enhance student employability. He is also an expert in eye tracking methodology and has implemented this in the areas of cyberpsychology, reading, and health and safety.
Nima Ahmadi is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Outcomes Research, Houston Methodist. He earned a Ph.D. in Engineering Management from Western New England University. His primary area of focus is human factors engineering. He contributed to the development of an iPad-based training program to enhance teen drivers’ hazard perception skills and designed a gaze-based training intervention for general aviation student pilots using a flight simulator and eye-tracking device. Currently, Dr. Ahmadi is exploring triggers of stress and workload in ICUs and designing an intervention to improve medical compliance among African American breast cancer patients.
Achim J. Lilienthal is professor of Computer Science and head of the Mobile Robotics and Olfaction (MRO) Lab at Örebro University, Sweden. His core research interest is perception systems in unconstrained, dynamic environments. Typically based on approaches that leverage domain knowledge and Artificial Intelligence, his research work addresses mobile robot olfaction, rich 3D perception, navigation of autonomous transport robots, human-robot interaction, and mathematics education research.
Helen Lindner is a senior lecturer in occupational therapy at Örebro University in Sweden. She received a PhD degree in Medical Sciences at Örebro University. My current work tasks include teaching occupation-based cognitive rehabilitation and working as clinical occupational therapist at the local hospital. One of her main research interests is to explore the process of learning a multi-articulating prosthetic hand.

We will be reporting results from a pilot project using eye tracking as a tool for assessing hazard perception on a construction site in Scotland. Eye-gaze was used as a proxy measure for gauging workers' attention to hazards when viewing scenes of construction sights. Their viewing strategies and perception level were assessed in the context of their experience, roles, and training when viewing different construction site scenarios. Our presentation will provide a context of the project outlining our experimental set-up, eye-tracking measures and analysis, and future research directions.
Speaker: Achim J. Lilienthal
In this presentation I will present how we at the Mobile Robot & Olfaction lab at Örebro University envision and study the use of wearable eye-tracking for improved safety and efficiency in applications where mobile robots (for example autonomous forklifts in logistics applications) operate in a space shared with humans. Since the use of wearable eye-tracking glasses poses similar challenges in other fields, I will also mention research efforts in other domains, too.
Speaker: Helen Lindner
In this presentation I will present how I use the Tobii Pro Glasses 2 to trace cognitive processes of upper limb prosthesis users when they are operating a multifunctional prosthetic hand. I compared durations of fixations, fixation count and pupil diameters under different clinical assessments in upper limb prosthetics.
