Electric vehicles: the human factor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The wheels have fallen off countless utopian transport dreams after coming into contact with actual people. Essentially, we have been trying to support people in the travel behaviours they currently perform but in a new way, or expecting them to change those behaviours entirely, or both. Unfortunately, people do not always behave in ways that engineers expect. Could electric vehicles (EVs) be next in line for a bruising encounter with the human factor? Or could the science of Human Factors be used to help realize their potential?
