The Human Systems Laboratory (HSL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a research group within the MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The lab was originally founded in 1962 as the Man Vehicle Laboratory (MVL) and was renamed in 2018. HSL performs research to improve the understanding of human physiological and cognitive capabilities to optimize human-system effectiveness and to develop appropriate countermeasures and evidence-based engineering design criteria.
