Human-technology interaction (HTI) is a human-centred perspective to technological innovation and development. By understanding human factors and user experiences in everyday and working environments, HTI has great relevance to the economical success of technical products and services. The aim of HTI research is to enhance the implementation of information technologies in solutions that are more functional, usable and meaningful for people. VTT's human-technology interaction research is closely integrated to the research and development of different technologies, information society organisations and infrastructures. We conduct confidential research for individual clients as well as participate in multi-party joint ventures.
