ter Hancock, a UCF Psychology Pegasus Professor and University Trustee Chair, has been named an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Fellow.
His appointment, beginning January 2017, is in recognition of his contributions to adaptive human-systems engineering.
Adaptive human-systems use direct information from on-line brain physiological monitoring. The systems adjust and adapt their operations to improve unaided individuals’ ability. These systems are employed in many dimensions of everyday life and exert significant effects on the design of almost all computer-based technological innovations.
Hancock has applied adaptive human-systems engineering to military systems as well as other fields. Currently, Hancock and his graduate students are developing robotics for aiding physically disabled individuals.
