Effective Intelligent Transport Systems Integrate Human Factors

By incorporating the human factors interdisciplinary behavioural science into the design process, system designers can shape transport systems with a deeper understanding of the factors that influence human behaviour; this insight keeps people at the centre of the design process, informs the process with an empathetic approach to comprehending the why in road-user behaviour—and offers greater potential for incident/crash prevention.
