The International Airport Review just published an article by our collaborators Paola Tomasello, Stefano Bonelli and Vera Ferraiuolo about three ways neuroscience can support the development of Air Traffic Management (ATM) in the future. As the role of air traffic controllers shifts to a more observatory one, does neuroscience hold the key to ensuring this...

Visit us at the World ATM Congress 2019: we are presenting our latest solutions for real-time neurophysiological measurement of workload and stress at Leonardo Stand (n. 890, Hall 10). Come play with us! Like video games? Ever wondered how you perform under pressure? Then, come prove yourself with our ATC game! Safely land as many aircraft as possible...

This month's issue of the SESAR newsletter features the NINA project. NINA explored the possibility to use brain waves to measure Air Traffic Controllers’ mental workload. Indeed, using neurophysiological measures to assess the mental state of ATCOs’ opened new paths to improve safety in Air Traffic Management. In fact, the real time evaluation of the...

On the 11th of February, Deep Blue presented NINA project's final results to the SESAR Joint Undertaking. NINA explored the possibility to use brain waves to measure Air Traffic Controllers’ mental workload. Using neurophysiological measures to assess the mental state of ATCOs' opened new paths to improve safety in Air Traffic Management. In fact, the...

Last week Deep Blue was in Bologna (Italy) to attend the SESAR Innovation Days 2015, hosted by the University of Bologna. This year, the event took place from the 1st to the 3rd of December 2015. The SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs) are the main way for SESAR to disseminate the results of its research programme (WP-E)....

Following the closing of the project, the leading news agency in Italy ANSA released a news regarding NINA. Below is the summary of the article content, for non italian speakers. Firstly, ANSA describes NINA's research, aimed at avoiding Air Traffic Controllers' peak workload by monitoring the internal mental state of the ATCOs. Initially, the project found a...

Currently, Deep Blue is in Toulouse (France) at ENAC facilities for the second validation activity of the NINA project. NINA aims to use brain waves and neurophysiological measures to assess Air Traffic Controllers’ mental workload and prevent peaks. The project team is now performing the validation activity, which involves more than 20 students. The objective of the...

Deep Blue and the other NINA project members convened in Rome on the 10th of September for the last progress meeting. NINA is exploring the use of brain waves and neurophysiological measures to assess air traffic controllers’ mental state. Project partners discussed the adaptive automation solutions to validate, and agreed on the final validation plan. Representatives...

On the 6th of May, Deep Blue held a workshop on adaptive interfaces solutions in its premises in Rome. Automation experts, operative Air Traffic Controllers, interaction design experts and members of the NINA project Consortium (including Sapienza and ENAC) participated in the meeting. As a result, this workshop generated several operative high workload scenarios and a...

On the 5th of May, we hosted a progress meeting of the NINA project. The research project is exploring the possibility of using neurophysiological measures to assess air traffic controllers’ mental state. The project Consortium discussed and presented to the Project Officer an overview of NINA, and the results achieved during the preliminary validation activity. In particular, project...
