The broad and developing scope of human factors and ergonomics - the application of scientific knowledge to improve people’s interaction with products, systems and environments - has been illustrated for 28 years by the books which make up the Contemporary Ergonomics series. This book presents the proceedings of the international conference – Ergonomics and Human Factors 2014. In addition to being the leading event in the UK that features ergonomics and human factors across all sectors, this is also the annual meeting of the Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors. Individual papers provide insight into current practice, present new research findings and form an invaluable reference source. The volumes provide a fast track for the publication of suitable papers from international contributors, with papers being subject to peer review since 2009 and selected by the conference programme committee. A wide range of topics are covered in these proceedings including workload, human capability, systems, product design, manufacturing systems, behaviour change, health and wellbeing, organisational culture, smart environments and sustainability, transport and musculoskeletal disorders. As well as being of interest to mainstream ergonomists and human factors specialists, Contemporary Ergonomics and Human Factors will appeal to all those who are concerned with people's interactions with their working and leisure environment including designers, manufacturing and production engineers, health and safety specialists, occupational, applied and industrial psychologists, and applied physiologists.

Simulation continues to be a growth area in transportation human factors. From empirical studies in the laboratory to the latest training techniques in the field, simulators offer myriad benefits for the experimenter and the practitioner. This book draws together current trends in research and training simulators for the road, rail, air and sea sectors to inform the reader how to maximize both validity and cost-effectiveness in each case. Simulators for Transportation Human Factors provides a valuable resource for both researchers and practitioners in transportation human factors on the use of simulators, giving readers concrete examples and case studies of how simulators have been developed and used in empirical research as well as training applications. It offers useful and usable information on the functional requirements of simulators without the need for any background knowledge on the technical aspects, focusing on the state of the art of research and applications in transport simulators rather than the state of the art of simulation technology. The book covers simulators in operational terms instead of task simulation/modelling and provides a useful balance between a bottom-up, academic approach and a top-down, practical perspective.

Ergonomics and human factors is the discipline concerned with the application of scientifc knowledge to improve people�s interaction with products, systems and environments. This book presents the proceedings of the international conference, Ergonomics and Human Factors 2015, the 29th year in which a volume in the Contemporary Ergonomics series has appeared. In addition to being the leading event in the UK that features ergonomics and human factors across all sectors, this is also the annual conference of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF). The scope and breadth of ergonomics and human factors continues to expand at a rapid pace. Contemporary Ergonomics and Human Factors 2015 reflects many of these developments and includes contributions covering the latest work in healthcare, transportation, defence, stress, manufacturing, design, and health and safety. There are also developments in data analytics, culture and complexity. This book also celebrates the long tradition of work in ergonomics and human factors which began with the formation of the Ergonomics Research Society in 1949 and culminated in 2015 with a Royal Charter. This has conferred recognition, at the highest level, of the uniqueness and value of our scientifc discipline and the preeminent role of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors in representing both the discipline and the profession. As well as being of interest to mainstream ergonomists and human factors specialists, Contemporary Ergonomics and Human Factors 2015 will appeal to those concerned with people�s interaction with their working and leisure environment, including designers, manufacturing and production engineers, health and safety specialists, occupational, applied and industrial psychologists, and applied physiologists.
