Haptic Interaction

Haptics is the science of the sense of feel and touch. Haptic interfaces use forces, generally on the hands, to transmit information. Forces on a control device typically lead to a direct influence from the haptic system on the control input, creating a situation of shared control.

Cognition and Action

Cognition is not an isolated phenomenon, but an result from the interaction with the environment. Action and interaction are needed produce a valid cognitive environment.
  • Human performance and learning

    • Status: Active
    • Since September 2015

    Despite today’s high levels of safety in aviation, there is a persistent category of fatal accidents caused by an inadequate response of the flight crew to unexpec...

Real-Time Simulation

Simulation is an essential tool to create valid environments for studying human behaviour and system performance

Handling Qualities

Handling Qualities are those properties of an aircraft which govern the ease and precision by which the pilot-aircraft system can perform a given task
