Offer as Work Package Leader/Task Leader for MG-2-1-2018: Human Factors in Transport Safety
by Kristof Vlaeminck | Dec 22, 2017
Name of the Organisation: University of Bergen
Organisation Short Name: UiB
Organisation Type: HES
ACTIVITYTopic(s) of interest from 2018-2019 Transport Work Programme:
- 2. SAFE, INTEGRATED AND RESILIENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS
Fields of Activity: Work and Organizational Psychology
Skills and Experise Offered: Establish limitations to human performance in maritime operations and in the air transport sector, in particular regarding the work – rest schedules, to provide evidence for new recovery measures and mitigation solutions.
Perform realistic true to life simulator studies in high fidelity navigation and ship control simulators to assess human systems interaction and distributed situation awareness in maritime operations. At the same time, these simulations will be adapted to an aircraft control environment so that the same approach can be applied both to the waterborne as to the air transport.
Define behavioural markers, including successful and degraded human performance in real and simulated operations.
Develop recovery measures such as back-up procedures, rest and recovery procedures to be experimentally verified and integrated with biological sensors, HRV and eye tracking.
In collaboration with e.g. ship and aircraft insurance companies to compile and analyse safety related data of accidents, incidents and near misses and other safety events.
Develop an open source register of accidents, root causes, co-occurring events and recommended preventive measures.
Develop the empirical bases for an artificial safety focused intelligence system in the maritime and aviation industry that could be used for training and preparations and during operations, including crew resource management, crew awareness and response in extreme cases (e.g. collision, evacuation, aircrafts upset recovery, runway excursions, etc).
Keywords: human factors, transport safety, maritime operations, waterborne, air transport, biological sensors, HRV, eye tracking
Previous FP Projects Participated: Only experience with projects of the Norwegian Research Council.
