Welcome to LESCOT!

The Ergonomics and Cognitive Sciences for Transport Laboratory is part of the Transport, Health and Safety - TS2 department within the Gustave Eiffel University.

The laboratory is positioned with one objective: To understand the human being and his activity in a travel situation to allow a mobility adapted to his needs while guaranteeing his safety.

Four major thematic axes of orientation for the future, medium and long term have been defined to achieve this objective:

  1. Understanding of the attentional mechanisms involved in mobility
  2. Diagnosis of the state and activity of the driver
  3. Influence of health status on mobility
  4. Digital modeling of the human being and immersive simulation for the User Experience

These axes answer societal, road safety, transport psychology and health questions. They concern the safety of vulnerable users such as cyclists and scooter users, who are increasingly present on the roads, whether in urban or rural areas. They deal with the development of automated vehicles and the consequences of these new modes of transport on mobility in terms of safety and acceptability but also in terms of cognitive adaptation with other non-automated vehicles as well as with pedestrians.
