The coordination between train traffic controllers and train drivers: a distributed cognition perspective on railway

Rebecca Andreasson, Anders A. Jansson, Jessica Lindblom
2018 Cognition, Technology & Work  
In operational railway traffic, the successful planning and execution of the traffic are the product of the socio-technical system comprised by both train drivers and traffic controllers.  ...  This paper presents a study inspired by cognitive ethnography with the aim to characterise the coordinating activities that are conducted by train traffic controllers and train drivers in the work practices  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank the traffic controllers and train drivers who so generously participated in this study and provided us unhindered access to their everyday work activities.  ...
