COMFort in the cabin DEMOnstrator

Project description

Putting passengers in the driver’s seat when it comes to comfort

We have come a long way from the Wright brothers' gasoline-powered engine and its twin counter-rotating propellers. Large commercial propeller planes (turboprops) are an important intermediate class of airplane that is better suited to shorter flights than jet aircraft. However, the propellers can induce noise, vibrations and other environmental modifications that reduce passengers' sense of comfort, leading them to choose less efficient travel with higher emissions. Perception is not always equivalent to reality, and in this case perception is critical. The EU-funded ComfDemo project is developing a simulator that will integrate sensor data from a wearable jacket with self-reported levels of comfort via an "in-flight" questionnaire to enhance designs for greater comfort and popularity.
