Difference between Ergonomics, Anthropometry, Proxemics
Ergonomics : is an applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that the people and things interact most efficiently and safely. 
Ergonomics (also known as Human Factors) describes information about humans in "working" situations.

Anthropometry : is the measurement of the size and proportions of the human body.
Anthropometrics deals with information about human body size and shape.

Proxemics :  is the study of space and how we use it, how it makes us feel more or less comfortable, and how we arrange objects and ourselves in relation to space. The term was coined by the anthropologist Edward Hall.

Proxemics is the branch of knowledge that deals with the amount of space that people feel it necessary to set between themselves and others.
