Mission of ErgOptim
The LIER has added a new department since September 2011: ErgOptim. This new entity of development of ergonomics in the transportation field is managed by former IFSTTAR’s researchers in ergonomics and biomechanics, Elodie Chateauroux and Céline Grange Faivre.
The creed of this department is “universal design” in order to help the industry in designing vehicles (cars, industrial vehicles, trains, motorcycles, trams, buses, coaches) which take into account the usability needs and expectations of all future users:
- Driver or passenger,
- Small or higher height,
- Person with Reduced Mobility (PRM) or visually impaired user,
- Mother with stroller or traveller with heavy luggage,
- Youngster or senior.
