Transcript of Modern Cockpit

Perception
Balancing between tasks
monitoring multiple different sources of information of varying relation
HISTORY
Advances in the Cockpit

Human information processing
Current Technology
Garmin
John Schaefer, Matt Hurley, Bryan Gagnon, and Cory Grady
Design Factors
FAA AC 20-175
Why?
- Increased traffic congestion
- Complexity of transport aircraft
- To increase safety
1970's
- 1979 in the MD-80
Anthropometric data
1980's
Flight Deck Modernization & Touch Screen Technology
- Boeing 757, 767
- 2-crew glass cockpit
- Commercial aviation: Boeing 767 in September 1982
Data Input
1990's
More Products
Finger Size & Icons
- Liquid crystal display panel
- Found in most commercial airliner cockpits today

FAA says:

"the input device is physically part of the display area"
2000's
- 2005, glass cockpit was introduced into general aviation
- Models include Piper Arrow, Cirrus SR22, and Diamond DA-40
Three Touch Screen Requirements:
1. finger positioning
2. scratch, wear, water
3. predictable & obvious
ODICIS
Future
"steam" gauges
Improved performance BUT Created new challenges
So what's the problem?
Challenges to overcome:
greatest amount of information in a limited amount of space
critical information = minimal visual scan.
On the Defensive
Into here
Touch and Hold
Confirmation Screen
Human Factors to Overcome
cognitive stress
perception, attention, and memory.
learning new systems
G2000
G5000
IFD440
IFD540
ForeFlight
Too much information over wide viewing area = detrimental to flight
Attention
grouping relevant information together prevents processing stress caused by memory overload
Ex: VSI next to altimeter on PFD
Memory
