Industrial Design Commissioned To Examine Human Factors In Security Screening Systems

25 May, 2011
UK Company CCD has been appointed to research testing processes for assessing usability of security systems

Airport frustration levels could be set to reduce after the UK's Home Office has commissioned a UK ergonomics consultancy group, CCD to look into the possibility of establishing a human factors testing process that can be used in the development and implementation of security screening systems. This would be then be done in addition to existing testing procedures for security systems used at critical facilities.


The project is being funded under the innovation scheme for explosives and weapons detection and will focus on usability issues and training as well as establishing a process for fitting this usability testing into existing test regimes that exist in the UK and abroad for screening systems.
