The field of human factors is typically defined as the broad study of how humans behave physically and psychologically in relation to particular environments or products. When applied specifically to humans engaged in the task of operating an automobile or otherwise involved within a transportation system, the field of study may be better described as Driver Factors. .
At Focus Forensics, our engineers have extensive education, training, experience, and research backgrounds in automotive engineering, roadway design, traffic control devices, and collision reconstruction. This provides a platform for our analyses of how drivers and pedestrians gather information, how it is processed, how decisions are made, and how a specific stimulus may affect the responses and choices of the typical range of drivers faced with a similar situation. .
Call one of our engineers to discuss how Driver Factors expertise may help you understand the factors that led to a transportation event, or how the incident could have potentially been prevented.
