How does biosignal data and research provide deep UX insights?
Exponent's human factors scientists integrate psychophysiology, eye-tracking, and video-capture technologies with data analysis algorithms to extract relevant data related to user experience across diverse demographics and in various conditions.
Exponent's evaluations include detailing participants' emotional and physical responses to different media and monitoring physical and mental states of vehicle operators and passengers. We assess cardiac activity such as heart rate and heart rate variability (electrocardiogram), galvanic skin response (electrodermal activity), and facial electromyography (fEMG).
Exponent's biosignal data research is particularly valuable for clients working in advertising, gaming, movie-video streaming, and social media content, as well as the emerging field of autonomous, self-driving vehicles.
For 50+ years, we’ve thrived on solving unstructured problems that require bespoke solutions. Some of our services include:
• Extracting relevant metrics rapidly and efficiently, correlating them with user experience
• Evaluating media content using biosignals and eye movements
• Using biosignals to monitor driver and passenger states
• Monitoring driver mental workloads and passengers for the potential onset of sickness and passenger comfort
