Automatic Haptic System Test Bench for Active Inceptors


The new generation of active inceptor provides new functionalities and especially haptic behaviour to improve the flight experience and the crew coordination. It is therefore important to have means of test able to support these new and high level functionalities. The goal of the project is to design and manufacture a new generation of system test bench, fully automatized/robotized, able to receive and to control a shipset of generic active inceptors developed in the frame of ITD SYS. The test bench must simulate the haptic behaviour of the pilots’ hands and needs to be adaptive to the various configurations and combinations compatible with generic inceptor : fixed wings, rotary wings, cyclic and collective functions, throttle type,...). Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
