Social, political, economic, ecological and technological factors will bring radical changes to future transport systems. The Intelligent Zero Emissions Vehicle (IZEV) project concerned the design and installation of intelligent, wireless computing, and hydrogen fuel cell technology in a taxi and narrow boat. Such telemetry will enable fleet owners, drivers and passengers to pull down real time information pertinent, concerning, for example, route and tourist information, fuel efficiency and location information. This will enable travelers to make informed, intelligent decisions about their travel behaviour. The creation of such demonstrators provides opportunities for stakeholders to understand how technological developments will influence their everyday lives and to provide input future scenarios. Their feedback can help designers better understand requirements, modify their designs and consider ways of presenting their ideas for greater public awareness and acceptance. This paper describes both the end user involvement which occurred in the four month IZEV project and reflects on the opportunities such projects offer for enquiries into ergonomic issues.
