The Human Implications of New Technologies (HINT) is intended to develop a European strategy for managing the human and organisational impacts of the new technologies likely to be implemented over the next 10-20 years. The objectives of the project are to :
Identify the relevant technologies
Investigate the human factors, organisational and safety implications of these technologies
Develop a strategy for managing those impacts
The approach of the project will be multi-modal. It will address all the modes of transport - road, rail, air and water - as well as intermodal operations and transport services. The modes will be addressed not separately, but in cross-modal studies by topic, so that the human and organisational issues can be studied generically. The timing and rate of introduction of new technologies often varies considerably between the modes; the cross-modal approach will provide a structure for studying how relevant is the experience of one mode for other modes.
