Research on integrated collimated cockpit visual and flight information system
MetadataShow full item record
The work presented introduces the development of an Enhanced Integrated Collimated Cockpit Visual and Flight Information System (ECVFIS) environment to further improve situation awareness and reduce workload through all phases of flight operation. The goal is to use this technology by several air system designs ranging from supersonic business jet to Unmanned Air System (UAS) ground control station. This paper provides an overview of the theoretical background of previous research basically dealing with Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI) of aircraft cockpits before briefly introducing the ECVFIS environment concept. After discussing potential concept advantages and visual sensor platforms to generate daytime and weather independent visual information, we will discuss the realization of the applied research to valida the proposed concept.
