Recently, we joined Thales at their Bordeaux premises to help evaluate their future touch-screen cockpit design concept.
The innovative, full touch-screen is meant to provide additional functionalities supporting pilots in performing their tasks. Our role focussed on evaluating the human factors implication of the cockpit through a simulation that involved 20 Lufthansa pilots engaged in a complex scenario. After the simulation, our Human Factors experts interviewed the pilots to collected their feedback, eliciting in particular perceived strenghts and possible criticalities of the new cockpit interface.
The activity took place in October and lasted two weeks.
