Our Goal

The primary objective of the Human Centered Transportation Systems (HCTS) technical committee is to bring together specialists from the all areas of Human-Transportation systems, including ships, airplanes, trains, and cars, and to promote interdisciplinary study on human factor in the transportation system. The goal of the TC is to improve compatibility in Human and User Interface (UI) of navigation systems for ships, airplanes, trains, and cars, and to provide effective educational training system for their operators.
