Session B4 - The Human-Technology Interface

October 29 2010 , 10:15 am - 11:45 am

How might technology help passengers easily navigate an automated transit system? How will passengers know what to do when they arrive at a station? How will security be handled? How will payment be made? Could passengers use cell phones and PDAs to schedule a vehicle in advance of arriving at a station? Will digital information change in relation to the language spoken by the user?
