Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SIBACK (Smart Inceptor BACKup electronics)
Reporting period: 2018-12-01 to 2019-11-30
In fact, in aircraft with standrad inceptors, the force feedback is made mechanically (with a spring). The Smart Inceptors proposes to perform this force feedback with motors.
This solution allow many features (like : move pilot and copilot inceptors at the same time; shake the inceptors if the airplane is at the limit of the flight envelope...)
More electrical aircraft :
The smart inceptor contributes to made Aircraft more electric.
The main issue adressed was to integrate al lrequired fucntionnalities in the allowed case. Several daughter board have been integrated to optimize the space used in the case
- Product and boards specification have been written.
Preliminary design review :
- Electrical Interface Control document have been written
- Architecture have been defined
- Mechanical 3D mockup have been performed
Detailed design :
- Electrical sheme and BOM have been performed)
- Place and route activities have been began during first period
That allow to optimize the A/C features and increase aircraft safety
