Interaction Centre (UCLIC)

UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC) is a world-leading centre of excellence for interdisciplinary research on human-computer interaction, studying interactions between people and technology, and using this knowledge to inform design. We collaborate with technology users and manufacturers within industry and academia, including hospitals, medical device manufacturers, news organisations (BBC), computer manufacturers (Intel) and other universities. Facilities include a usability laboratory with eye tracker and a reconfigurable space for larger equipment (e.g. motion capture system), as well as a new interaction research laboratory with touch tables and physical computing kits to support research in ubiquitous computing.
