TMC Human Factors Design Guidelines: Requirements Analysis
Preliminary Human Factors Guidelines for TMCs were developed in 1999 to incorporate human factors principles to the design and operation of TMCs. These guidelines are intended to form a basis for further examination of future operator requirements and thus continue to support effective user-system design. However, these guidelines are dated and do not meet current user needs. This project performed a requirements analysis to identify and prioritize needs for human factors guidance in TMCs.
This project identified methods used to collect and analyze relevant information, including:
- Literature review.
- Information obtained directly from TMC pooled fund members.
- Identification of guideline topics.
- Development of sample guidelines.
The key results from this effort, including:
- An overall approach for developing a comprehensive guidelines document.
- A recommendation regarding the development of a web-based version of the guidelines.
- A recommended outreach plan to inform city, county, and state DOTs about this work.
- An outline of proposed Guideline topics/table of contents.
- Three sample guidelines.
- Project Report
