The Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) is a non-profit research organisation for aerospace in the Netherlands and one of its major technological institutes. Our overall mission is making air operations and space exploration safer, more sustainable and more efficient. NLR’s multidisciplinary approach focuses on developing new and cost-effective technologies for aviation and space. With its unique expertise and state of the art facilities NLR bridges the gap between research and application.
NLR contributes to the VIBE project in two areas, namely the human factors side and the technology side. From the human factors side, NLR works together with the VIBE healthcare partners in performing (training) needs analysis, user scenario development and user evaluations for the VIBE avatar applications. From the technology side, NLR brings in its expertise in the design of interactive simulations. Additionally, NLR contributes to the research and development of human interaction models with conversational agents.
