Road transport

Transport by car or truck has many human factors / ergonomics aspects. The driver position requires a good visibility, easy accessibility / adjustability of controls, and comfort. The introduction of technical systems, such as navigation systems and onboard computers, can support the driver. But they can also distract him, so safety is compromised.

The design of traffic situations (infrastructure) and the use of static and dynamic information along the way affect driver behaviour; Intergo understands why and how. Lastly, traffic management implies ergonomic requirements both on the part of the dispatcher and the driver.
