Development of a Framework to Establish the Safety Benefits of Intelligent Transport Systems: The Use of Cognitive Work Analysis

Anderson, Janet

Strategy & Theory


Cognitive Work Analysis is a system for analysing complex work domains. The results of the analysis can be used to design selection and training programs, design displays and interfaces and evaluate designs. In this paper the potential benefits of applying CWA to the problem of road safety are examined, particularly in relation to the introduction of ITS to vehicles. Finally, the development of a framework to explore the safety benefits of ITS by the use of CWA will be outlined.
