Cognition = knowledge; the Cognition & Navigation (CogNav) group is for those interested in the navigator as a thinking, behaving agent, be it human, animal or machine.
The aim of the group is to bring together academics and those working in industry in order to provide a two-way conduit for scientific knowledge to impact on technology design, and for real-world problems (such as navigating in cities, or in virtual reality) to inform scientific questions.
If interested and would like to know more, please contact Kate Jeffery: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our launch event, Urban Wayfinding & The Brain, was held on 14 June. Feedback was very positive from the interdisciplinary audience, with many interested in ongoing dialogue and engagement.
