    Abstract

    This chapter provides an explanation of ergonomics (or human factors) in relation to person centred approaches to vehicle and transport design, the benefits of taking this approach, and the factors that might be included under a more inclusive definition of automotive and transport ergonomics. The Hexagon Spindle Model (Benedyk, Woodcock and Harder, 2009) is used to connect traditional ergonomics with more recent developments in the applied field.
