Federal agencies in the transportation sector offer HSI principles and guidelines related to issues of attention and distraction. These guidelines can provide directions for design of new tools and technology in the rail industry that support operator attention and minimize distraction.
This helpful Federal Railroad Administration report on use of HSI in the rail sector is available in the FRA eLibrary: Melnik, G., et al. (2016). An Acquisition Approach to Adopting Human Systems Integration in the Railroad Industry.
Additional Department of Transportation (DOT) agencies and component organizations have also developed HSI guidelines that may also help work in the rail sector:
