Traffic control

Traffic control occurs from control centers. Within these the following issues may be relevant: occupancy (how many staff do I need), division of labor (which area can be controlled by one operator), workload, information presentation, space allocation, collaboration, choice of consoles, etc. Intergo has extensive experience in these areas. Our minisite www.werkbelasting.nl explains our methods of assessment and prediction of mental workload in more detail.
