Congratulations to the Interactive Institute's Johan Fagerlönn who successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled ”Designing Auditory Warning Signals to Improve the Safety of Commercial Vehicles” in Luleå, December 7. Faculty opponent was Daniel Västfjäll from Linköping University. Västfjäll found the work interesting and well conducted. Both the opponent and the grade committee found the design tool “Participatory Audio Research Tool”, as well as the sound design process for auditory warnings, to be especially important.
