Advanced Engine Off Navigation

Project description

A closer look at engine-off taxiing procedures

How should the operations performed by taxiing actors and automation be designed to benefit the most from aircraft capable of engine-off taxiing as well as autonomous tug in terms of safety, capacity and environmental impact? This is the question the EU-funded AEON project will seek to answer. Specifically, it will explore ways to determine in real time efficient, conflict-free routing plans for autonomous and non-autonomous aircraft taxiing from gates to the corresponding runways and vice versa. The project will also address how to schedule a fleet of towing vehicles for taxiing during the day of operations. Another aspect will be how to dynamically adjust this schedule when operation disruptions occur and how to manage and adjust real-time collaboration between human operators and automation.
