Transport & Infrastructure
Current economic developments mean that traffic flows in the freight and transport sectors Air, Water and Road are on the increase. In order to cope with this growth, players in the transport sector must rely more on innovation. The impact of technology and the translation of data will increasingly determine the processes in the logistics chain. Intergo has a lot of experience in this area. For example, in the design of vehicles/vessels, transport-control and infrastructure. Naturally our Human Factors Expertise stands us in good stead. Intergo is committed to improving safety, but also focuses on an efficient, sustainable and pleasant use of these transport systems.
It is in fact the sheer quantity of stakeholders in these transport systems that makes our work relevant: managers of vehicles/vessels, passengers, infrastructure operators, regulators. All these parties have varying requirements; Intergo is able to translate these into an optimal design.
Intergo focuses with the following products on freight and transport by Air, Water, and Road:
- Interaction & Product: style guides, operating consoles, alarm management.
- Workplace & Control Room: simulators, bridges (on ships), traffic control centres, traffic control towers, CCTV systems.
- Workload & Organisation: uniform operating concepts, physical and mental workload, fatigue management, timetable scheduling, staffing.
- Risks & Incidents: carrying out risk and incident analyses (BowTie, FMEA, CRIOP, HAZOP, STEP analysis, ECFA+, HFIT, BFA and RCA), and providing training.
