Humans are on the move. In our increasingly complex and fast-paced world, constant pressure exists to build more efficient, cost-effective transportation systems, whether we’re talking about cars, trucks, trains, airplanes, ships, industrial vehicles, or other ways to travel. Whatever mode of transportation under consideration, they all have one thing in common: the interface between people and machines. This includes car and truck drivers, airplane pilots, train conductors, boat and ship captains, fork-lift drivers, and others using mechanical vehicles in their work and private life. Consequently, constant pressure exists to build increasingly efficient, reliable, safe, and user-friendly transportation products. Customer complaints and recalls due to design problems can be extremely costly, not only in terms of revenue but also company reputation. Finally accidents attributed to operator confusion and human errors often have tragic consequences. Auto and truck accidents are a daily occurrence, and train derailments are becoming increasingly commonplace.
At Humanproof, we have a passion for using Human Systems Integration to improve transportation efficiency, while reducing accidents due to design problems and human error to zero. This may seem like a lofty goal, but our dedicated experts have the knowledge and skills required to move your company in that direction.
