ODICIS - One DIsplay for a Cockpit Interactive Solution

Objective

ODICIS project aims at developing a single display cockpit and at studying its concept of use. This addresses three current major aeronautics needs: system architecture flexibility, useful surface optimization and information continuity. Therefore the project will improve the operational safety and efficiency and reduce the aircraft development cost. The first objective is to prove the technical feasibility of an avionics large seamless display, which can possibly be curved. This involves optical but also graphic generation challenges. The design of the display must take into account as far as possible user requirements and aircraft possibilities. Then, the adequate means of interaction must be defined and implemented. At this point, a complete technological mock-up of a single display cockpit will be available. At the same time, the concepts of use that partially led to the single display cockpit design must be reviewed and break downed, then tested on the fixed-base simulator. Human factors evaluations will seek to ascertain the safety and efficiency gains produced by this novel cockpit concept based on use of a single display. The ODICIS consortium comprises 9 partners from 7 EU member states. It includes 4 larges companies, 1 SME, 1 research centre and 3 universities. Together they provide the range of key skills, knowledge and experience required to define, develop, implement and exploit the results of the ODICIS project. During the whole duration of the project, the ODICIS consortium will exchange with the aeronautics actors (e.g. end users and safety authorities). A roadmap towards a single display cockpit product will be issued at the end.
