Iowa State’s ATHENA Lab dedicated to augmenting, understanding human performance
Mar 24, 2016 4:02 PM
Iowa State University’s Richard Stone and Thomas Schnieders, left to right, are co-founders of the ATHENA Lab. The lab is all about using engineering to augment and understand human performance.
“Iowa State’s ATHENA Lab is full of sensors, tools and research equipment, including a full-sized mannequin for studies of suturing techniques. Richard Stone, Thomas Schnieders, and a team of graduate students use the engineering lab to find ways to augment human performance. That includes developing better ways to train welders, design body armor or place UPC codes on packages…” [read more]
