Transportation Research at Jumpseat Research

Revolutionizing Transportation with Human Factors Research

Transportation and Human Factors

Transportation technology rapidly evolves, and Jumpseat Research is a beacon of innovation, merging traditional Human Factors research methods from Aviation Psychology with cutting-edge tools. Our mission is clear: elevate user testing to unprecedented heights, ensuring safe and effective design in transportation systems like space shuttles, airplanes, cars, and trains.

The Critical Role of Human Factors in Transportation

Understanding Human Factors in Driving: At the core of Jumpseat Research’s philosophy lies a profound understanding of how drivers integrate as a system component in vehicular safety. We recognize that driver performance is a complex interplay of environmental, psychological, and vehicle design factors. This comprehensive approach illuminates the path to safer, more intuitive transportation design.

A Holistic View of Road User Needs: We delve deep into the needs and capabilities of drivers, pedestrians, and special users, analyzing how these elements impact safety. Our research doesn’t just cover one aspect of transportation; it’s a cross-cutting endeavor, informing roadway design and supporting projects in various focus areas.


Pioneering Areas of Transportation Research

Driver State and Performance: Understanding driver behavior and performance is at the heart of our research. Jumpseat Research delves into the nuances of how drivers interact with their vehicles, shaping the future of transportation safety.

Enhancing Road User Behavior and Safety: We are committed to improving user behavior. Our approach involves a detailed analysis of user interactions with the road transport system, aiming to increase safety for all.

User-Centered Design of Road Transport Systems: The user is at the center of our design philosophy. We ensure that road transport systems deliver safety, comfort, efficiency, and pleasure. Our goal is to craft experiences that meet customer expectations now and in the future.

Automated Vehicles and Human Users: As automation in vehicles becomes increasingly prevalent, understanding the human user’s role is vital. Jumpseat Research is at the forefront, exploring how automated systems interact with human operators to enhance safety and efficiency.
