PACTS and IMechE event: Driver and Pilot Alertness
Driver and Pilot Alertness: Understanding Human Performance and the Contribution of Automation
Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London
05 December 2019
Early Bird ends on 25 October 2019
Whilst increase automation is reducing reliance on humans this may, if not designed and managed appropriately, increase the risk of loss of attention. Driver/Pilot alertness is affected by many factors including the design of the task, work environment, rostering, fatigue, stimulation profile of the duty, distraction etc. This seminar will consider these issues, and what controls are currently available to mitigate the inherent risks and whether there are lessons to be learned between modes of transport or other operations.
