A collaboration between psychologists and engineers.
Mission: To integrate into the design of engineering systems, the ways in which people perceive and are affected by machinery outputs.
Involves various groups of faculty interacting on many different research projects, proposals, graduate student committees, teaching and class development.The "Perception-based Engineering" name was created in 1998 by a group of faculty at Purdue who had been collaborating on research in speech perception, image perception, sound and noise perception over the previous decade.
$3.5m for Laboratory Facilities and Research Projects in Perception-based Engineering. The Perception-based Engineering Laboratory is part of Phase I of the Herrick Laboratories rebuilding and expansion plan. Completion anticipated December 2012.
