Markus Zimmermann

Markus Zimmermann graduated in Media Informatics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich with a focus on human-computer interaction. His diploma thesis at the Center for Digital Technology & Management covered the ergonomic aspects of ’Usability Requirements for a Mobile Fitness Application‘. Since then, he is working on the European research project ’Designing Dynamic Distributed Cooperative Human-Machine Systems (D3CoS)’ at the Institute of Ergonomics, Technische Universität München.


Development of Methods, Techniques, and Tools for

  • Multimodal human-computer interaction and interfaces for communicating cooperation in automotive usage
  • Driver state inference (Availability, Mode and Workload)
  • Dynamic cooperative system adaptation
  • Metrics for cooperation

Project interests

  • Working on state inference and multimodal user interaction together with ESR5 (Bastiaan Petermeijer) and ESR9 (Joel Goncalves)
  • Finding further Design Patterns for cooperation and automation as started in D3CoS (www.d3cos.eu/dp)
  • Providing training about driving simulation and eye tracking methods
  • Linking HFauto and the Cooperative and Automated Systems research group
