Human factors in rail and road

How are computers being used to improve the efficiency and safety of rail and road transport? What are the problems, what the benefits and what the costs?

The Human Factors Research Group at the University of Nottingham are experts in this field and they will be hosting a free discussion and demonstration on human factors of transport systems organised by the British Science Association at 15:00 on Tuesday 15 June 2010.

Intelligent Infrastructure, environmental sustainability in rail, and the Horizon car sharing project are some of the topics that will be discussed in this session. You will also have the chance to visit the train simulator in the Human Factors Transport Simulation laboratory.

Places are strictly restricted so please book your place by emailing
or telephone 024 76 71 72 75
