Human Factors in Intelligent Transportation Systems

By Woodrow Barfield; Thomas A. Dingus | Go to book overview

planning and implementing LSEs be required to address human engineering, safety, and societal issues as well as user acceptance and marketing issues. This requirement should not be limited to particular areas of ITS such as ATIS, which have been explored to a degree, nor can an assessment be a reiteration of potential benefit claims. Rather, all LSEs should address issues and concerns such as those discussed in this volume. Proposals should discuss how the issues will be dealt with or demonstrate why the issues are not relevant to a particular project. This would help to build a partnership with the human factors community leading to increased safety and satisfaction through better design.


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

TravTek was made possible by the ingenuity and hard work of many people. The TravTek Partners (FHWA, Florida Department of Transportation, City of Orlando, AAA and GM) were unusual in their commitment to human factors and safety, and in their willingness to participate in an extensive, innovative research program. TravTek benefited greatly from the leadership of project manager, Jim Rillings, and the dedication of the members of the TravTek Evaluation Working Group. Thanks especially to Frank Mammano (FHWA), August Burgett (NHTSA), Al Mertig (MITRE), and Deborah Dennard (AAA) for seeing the project through to the end. The authors wish to acknowledge members of the driver interface human factors team including Frank Szczublewski, Linda Means, Mark Krage (all GM) and Janeth Carpenter (Hughes). The implementation of the studies was made possible by many engineers and technicians at GM, Hughes, and AAA who spent many hours bringing automatic data logging, the S, N, and N+ vehicle configurations, and the Camera Car into existence. The findings reported in this chapter are the result of a multiyear effort by researchers who contributed in various ways. The SAIC research team, led by Joe Peters and Vaughan Inman, had the responsibility of implementing the TravTek evaluation program under FHWA Contract No. DTFH61-91-C-00106. They, the study leaders, and a multitude of experimenters went beyond the call of duty. Finally, thank you to Melissa Hulse, Dan McGehee ( University of Iowa) and Lisa Thelen (EDS).
