Short Description

The IEEE-ITSS committee on Human Factors in Intelligent Transportation Systems was established in 2014. This TAC is expected to build upon a proper environment to disseminate knowledge and motivate interactions among the technical and scientific communities, practitioners and students, allowing state-of-the-art concepts and advances to be further developed and enhanced.


It aims at fostering activities on issues related to human factors in the design and evaluation of intelligent vehicles technologies, in a wide spectrum of applications and in different dimensions.
