Pat Langdon's experimental doctoral and post-doctoral research has contributed to cognitive science, artificial intelligence, robotics and psychophysical studies of the human visual system. His experimental PhD researched the psychological reality of certain Artificial Intelligence-based theories of vision and he was employed by an Artificial Intelligence Vision Research Unit at the University of Sheffield working on the area of robotics. Subsequently, he moved into Engineering Design Research at the University of Lancaster EDC, working on the application of AI and user centred design principles to complex engineering design systems.

Since 1998 Pat Langdon has been employed at the Cambridge EDC, where he has pursued a number of research directions, including human-machine interfaces as applied to automotive displays and controls using signal processing for gestural and pointing intent.
