in the Construction Industry
of the Future
PIs Hasanzadeh, Karalunas, Esmaeili
The construction industry is changing and soon construction workers will work alongside robots and communicate with drones. For humans and machines to become true teammates, the future workforce must be ready for this change. We are looking for adults with and without ADHD to participate in a study aiming to ensure safety and productivity at these future job sites. If you participate in this study, you will be asked to complete questionnaires about your own behaviors and opinions, a clinical interview, and a series of brick-laying tasks in a VR environment.
You may be eligible to participate if you:
Are 19 to 55 years of age
Are not prone to motion sickness, vertigo, or seizures
Are students or workers who have some construction or "Do It Yourself" experience (e.g., you've painted a room or hung pictures)
Have no clinical conditions that could affect your gait balance
Have a normal or corrected-to-normal vision
Participants may be compensated up to $85 for completing all parts!
