Under a five-year contract, the company will Alion provide the FRA“™s human factors research division technical guidance with the goal of reducing human factors in train, trespasser and grade crossing accidents.

“With all the technology onboard current passenger and freight trains, as well as at control centers, people still play a critical role in preventing accidents,“ said Terri Spoonhour, senior vice president and manager of the distributed simulation group. “People can get distracted or need to make quick decisions based on the unexpected, from weather to track conditions to trespassers or cars approaching crossings.
