Abstract

In many complex systems, there is often a tension between the pressures of production and protection, but modern society increasingly expects an additional level of performance - protecting the environment. One of the key political and societal targets for the ecologically-friendly movement is the transport industry. The Foot-LITE project is an effort to encourage drivers to adopt safer and more fuel-efficient behaviours by providing feedback and advice on driving style. The work at Brunel University is focused on the ergonomics of the system - determining the driver behaviour parameters and designing an interface to optimise performance. In this paper, we describe a review of the literature on safe and fuel efficient driving. Ergonomics has proven itself in contributing to safety and performance, now it has an opportunity to contribute to the environment.
