CARBODIN survey #1 on new driving cabins

Published by Christine Hassoun on

CARBODIN successfully carried out a survey across Europe investigating the railway staff preferences on new driving cabins and taking into account human factors.

The 1689 responses received from drivers, driving instructors, controllers, maintenance members, staff and other professionals will influence the analysis that CARBODIN will carry out regarding innovative Human-Machine interfaces applied to railways.

These positive responses from railway professionals of 15 European countries will provide an excellent base for the project activities and will allow CARBODIN to identify the best human-machine interactions like gesture, sound and voice in cabin design to ensure a safe and human working environment. The project expects to employ this survey to create a virtual mock-up with immersive technology based on a bank of sounds and gestures.

From CARBODIN, thank you to all the participants that contributed to this success!
