Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore a new mode of metro security check based on ergonomics. Before China’s epidemic policy had been adjusted at the end of 2022, the metro security inspection had faced the problem of balancing epidemic prevention and control and travel efficiency. To deal with different situations flexibly, the improved methods of the metro security system and proposed feasible countermeasures were explored in this study. Questionnaire interview and field observation methods were adopted in this study. Based on the research of literature and competing products, the forms of security check in different cities were compared and the existing problems of metro security check were summarized. The impact of different security inspection links in the metro access control system on passengers' travel efficiency was explored. Then, the design positioning and scheme design were proposed from the perspectives of man-machine size, process integration, information feedback, and product appearance. To improve the metro passengers’ travel efficiency, physiology and psychology knowledge in ergonomics were used in this metro entrance guard system integration design, which could make vulnerable groups go through the security check easily and improve the passengers’ efficiency to enter the metro station.
