Human-computer interactions are becoming increasingly present in our everyday life. The growing ubiquitous nature of interactive systems creates many conceptual and methodological problems that must be overcome by the designers and evaluators of these systems.

Human-Computer Interactions in Transport details human-computer interaction in the transport domain.

Discussing the richness and complexity of the field of transport , the central idea of this book is to examine how an individual can utilize interactive systems, either during the preparation of a trip or during the trip itself, all in the context of mobility.

This book will focus on traveler information and personalized systems, using a human-centered design approach.
