Ergonomic impact and new Functions induced by Active Inceptor integration in CockpiTS

Project description

Increasing situational awareness and safety in cockpits

The active side-stick unit (ASSU) technology can increase situational insight and safety, improve ergonomics, and establish a new communication form between the pilot and co-pilot. The EU-funded EFAICTS project will develop and integrate into ASSU optimised coupling and haptic functions for pilot and co-pilot as well as crew–autopilot interactions. The project proposes a human-centred method in which the end users are at the core of the development. EFAICTS will focus on tiltrotor aircraft and their characteristics because they operate as both rotary and fixed-wing aircraft and as a hybrid in the unique conversion corridor. Project work and outcomes will improve situational awareness and crew coordination, reduce workload and weight, and enhance performance.
