Here is a snapshot of what we’re doing. Take a look at our blogposts and the latest news from Deep Blue.

For our team in Rome, we are looking for candidates interested in working in our software development activities to expand our tech division. Deep Blue is specialized in user-centred design applied to transportation and safety-critical systems, for instance for aircraft and drone pilots, air traffic controllers, train drivers, ship captains. We build tools to support...

Aviation is going to change dramatically in the next decade. Urban air mobility will rise, employing drones and sky taxis. By 2030, single pilot operations will probably become a reality. The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and intelligent assistants in aviation will not only affect the flight deck but also air traffic and airport operations....

In Deep Blue, the attention to the person and their safety comes in different shapes. For example, the FAITH project sees us as a partner in creating a federated artificial intelligence solution to spot symptoms of depression in post-oncological patients. Within FAITH, the focus is on user-centered technologies for mental wellbeing. In recent times, the research...

Partendo dall’identificazione della domanda di un mercato del lavoro in continua evoluzione, Skill-UP sviluppa programmi di formazione professionale sulla base di metodi formativi e didattici innovativi per...

The European guide on stress management in air traffic control is now available on skybrary. The guide intends to help air traffic control professionals recognise stress, and identify possible mechanisms to mitigate its effects. Although the guide was born before the COVID-19 emergency, the pandemic makes it even more meaningful and relevant. In fact, the spread...

The ENGAGE project officially started! At the beginning of July, 14 organisations from different countries met virtually to launch ENGAGE. ENGAGE stands for "Engage Society for Risk Awareness and Resilience". This 3-year project, co-funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, will run until June 2023. ENGAGE addresses research and innovation on resilience. Resilience is an...

A week ago, together with SESAR JU, we kicked off the H2020 project SAFELAND, “SAFE LANDing through enhanced ground support”. Aim of SAFELAND is creating a valuable solution to support flight and landing of aircraft operated by a single pilot, due to partial or total incapacitation of the pilot. During its 30 month duration, the...

“How far is Europe from the mobility goals envisioned for the future?” This was the title of the TRA2020 invited session organised by three H2020 funded CSAs: CAMERA (Coordination and support Action for Mobility in Europe: Research and Assessment), OPTICS2 (Observation Platform for Technological and Institutional Consolidation of research in Safety and Security) and RINGO (Research...

Last week, we delivered our first online training in Human Factors for the EUROCONTROL's ATSEPs (Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel). We used online collaborative tools, such as real-time surveys and shared dashboards, to enhance learning and foster exchange. Our trainers Angela Donati and Paola Tomasello introduced the attending ATSEPs to the Human Factors basics. Together, they...
