About Coder

CODER is LUT’s usability lab. We have equipment to support user-testing of software products, through various interfaces and physical computing devices. The lab features overhead cameras, as well as a separate room with a one-way mirror for user observations.

The lab can be used for:

  • Controlled experiments
  • Conducting and monitoring co-design
  • Studies on different interaction devices, including interactive wall display, IoT devices, smart watches, wearables.
  • Physical prototyping

Please see here for a list of lab equipment.

The lab is available for both teaching and research.  IEM staff are able to submit bookings through LUT’s calendar booking system.

The lab is available for use by businesses who want to conduct usability research. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

For any queries or problems, please contact one of the managers:  Annika Wolff or Shola Oyedeji
