Maritime

In the maritime sector a lot of the same human factors risks apply as in other modalities. Again, there is a complex operation (ship's bridge), in which visibility, accessibility and comfort must be combined. But also cooperation and an international context provide challenges. Intergo has particular experience in the design of ship bridges, consoles and user interfaces. But from our experience with other modes of transport other human factors issues can also be dealt with.
