Advances in Human Aspects of Transportation
Human factors and ergonomics have made a considerable contribution to the research, design, development, operation, and analysis of transportation systems.
This includes road, rail, aviation, aerospace, and maritime vehicles as well as their complementary infrastructure. This book presents recent advances in the human factors aspects of transportation. These advances include accident analysis, automation of vehicles, comfort, distraction of drivers (including how to avoid it), environmental concerns, in-vehicle systems design, intelligent transport systems, methodological developments, new systems and technology, observational and case studies, safety, situation awareness, skill development and training, warnings, and workload.
This book brings together the most recent human factors work in the transportation domain, including empirical research, human performance, and other types of modeling, analysis, and development. The issues facing engineers, scientists, and other practitioners of human factors in transportation research are becoming more challenging and more critical.
