How to support decision-making of pilots in complex situations? The HARVIS project aims to answer this question by developing a future concept of Artificial Intelligence in the cockpit.
Flight movements are growing significantly in Europe, with no trend reversal expected. The integration of unmanned aircraft into the air space will make traffic management even more complex. A significant impact on pilots’ job is inevitable, with increasing information to deal with and new tasks to accomplish. Framing the human-machine interaction in terms of partnership will help building capacity in machines to better understand humans, and in people to engage collaboratively with them. In the cockpit, this partnership will lead to pilots using a set of new technologies, capable of self-learning, to anticipate needs and to adapt to pilots’ mental states.
The main goal of the HARVIS Project is to identify how cognitive computing algorithms, implemented in a digital assistant, could support the decision-making of single pilots in complex situations.
To reach this goal, the project will deliver:
We take care of the human factors aspects, from virtual assistant concepts design to the assessment of their impact on pilot performance.
We are also dissemination managers, taking care of project communication and scientific dissemination.
