Some recent items in the news with a human factors angle:
- What happened to Google Maps? Interesting comparison of Google Maps from 2010/2016 by designer/cartographer Justin O’Beirne.
- India will use 3D paintings to slow down drivers. Excellent use of optical illusions for road safety.
- Death by GPS. GPS mis-routing is the easiest and most relatable example of human-automaiton interaction. Unfortunately, to its detriment, this article does not discuss the automation literature, instead focusing on more basic processes that, I think, are less relevant.
