Abstract: Recent developments in sensing technologies make it increasingly feasible to collect physiological and behavioural data that can be exploited to understand operators’ cognitive challenges, health and operational readiness in real-life situations. Our previous work led to the development of a real-time data integration, synchronization, and processing nexus that can be used with multiple sensors and multiple users simultaneously. In turn, this data can be analysed and displayed on a dashboard to monitor one’s state using machine-learning derived or classical algorithms. This study presents how user-centred design can be harnessed to develop context-adapted monitoring solutions in two different use cases, that is space medicine and public safety personnel training. We highlight the steps taken to define context-adapted solutions for the exploitation of physiological and behavioural data. We also outline the necessity to consider end-users and stakeholders to produce usable information that is context relevant and that optimizes the human-system interaction.
