The current work explores the participation divide that is oftentimes at play within local citizen communities. The studied case illustrates a common situation where the majority of local citizens does not participate in public space improvement and maintenance activities organised by local community activists. The presented research involved...

Impoverished sensory input makes tele-operation of Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles a difficult task. Automation support can provide assistance to the operator, but may also produce automation surprise and a risk of loss of situation awareness, when the human operator fails to notice the actions of automation in high-workload situations. Previous...

The glass cockpit and EFB enable new ways of information presentation and interaction on the flight deck of modern commercial jets. This information supports crews in flight plan management, which essentially entails evaluating the plan against (ever-changing) flight constraints and, if necessary, modifying it. Flight constraints emerge from the...

Reducing high workload levels are a major challenge to enable single pilot operations. Where the pilot is currently supported with many automated systems, the role of mission planner is relatively unsupported, i.e., the flight crew is required to integrate and combine information from various sources to extract the implications on the missions’...

Aviation safety organizations have recommended that airline pilots are trained for startle and surprise. However, little information is available on useful training interventions. Therefore, a training intervention trial was executed during airline recurrent simulator training. The method consisted of a slow visual scan from the side-window,...

The Eigenmode Distortion (EMD) analysis is a novel method for objective evaluation of simulator motion cueing fidelity, developed at Delft University of Technology. It expresses the distortions of the perceived motion cues in terms of the dynamic modes of a linear model of the vehicle and has been applied to assess rotorcraft simulations. This...

Modern fly-by-wire aircraft use flight envelope protection systems, whose actions are not always clear to pilots. To promote situation awareness, proximity to the limits of the flight envelope can be communicated using haptic feedback, by providing forces through the control device. Such a system was developed and this paper reports on the...

This paper discusses an approach to convert the longitudinal dynamics of the Cessna Citation into a variable stability platform using response feedback, thereby enabling it to take different positions on the Control Anticipation Parameter (CAP) handling quality criterion. The different positions of an aircraft on the criterion reflect different...

When coupled with additional degrees of freedom, centrifuge-based motion platforms can combine the agility of an hexapod-basedmotion platform with the ability of sustaining higher Glevels and an extended motion space. This combination of motion characteristics is required for realistic simulation of extreme flight scenarios. However, a false and...

This paper describes an experiment investigating the effects of motion filter order on human manual control tracking behavior and performance. The experiment was performed on two simulators: the Vertical Motion Simulator at NASA Ames Research Center and the SIMONA Research Simulator at Delft University of Technology. Eighteen pilots in the...

This study revisits the active manipulator developed for manual aircraft control. The active manipulator sends the force applied by the pilot to the aircraft while feeding back the aircraft rotational velocity bymeans of its deflection angle. We find that the activemanipulator, in comparison with the conventional passive manipulator, greatly...

The Delft University laboratory aircraft Cessna Citation II has the capability to implement and test new auto pilot control laws. The aircraft is equipped as a Fly-By-Wire testbed, that enables the user to control the aircraft through an experimental computer and directly have control over the control surfaces. An extra control stick is mounted...

Current Airbus aircraft use a fly-by-wire control device: a passive spring-damper system which generates, without any force feedback, an electrical signal to the flight control computer. Additionally, a hard flight envelope protection system is used which can limit the inputs of the pilot when approaching the edges of the flight envelope. To...

The use of haptic feedback as a tool for skill training has shown benefits for the formation ofmotor-memory and support for certain temporal tasks. Therefore, this research focuses on the development of a haptic aid for supporting the training of the challenging manual flare maneuver in initial pilot training. The haptic aid, which consisted of...

Time-varying human-operator (HO) adaptation in basic manual-control tasks is barely understood, as most HO identification methods do not explicitly take into account time variations. An identification procedure based on both batch and recursive autoregressive exogenous (ARX) models is used in this paper for captur- ing HO adaptation to time...

Haptic interfaces have been developed to assist human operators controlling unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) be- yond line-of-sight. These systems complement the predominantly camera-based visual interfaces and act like a collision-avoidance system: when nearing obstacles, the operator gets re-directed by the haptic force feedback. Previous...

The “Maker Movement” signifies emergence of a cultural model of a society where anyone can become a creative maker. As part of this movement, various kinds of “Makerspaces” provide physical and social infrastructures that help unleash people’s intrinsic abilities to make, create, and innovate. In this way, makerspaces become loci where maker...

Understanding speed control in driving is important for analysis of road geometry and for the development of driver support assistance devices. Current models for speed selection are primarily based on the relation between road geometry and observed speeds. This study proposes a more detailed model that relates individual speed control to...

Traditional Frequency Response Function (FRF) estimation techniques used for analysis of Human Controller (HC) dynamics in tracking tasks assume HC dynamics to be linear, but generally do not quantify or compensate for the effects of human nonlinearities. The robust and fast Best Linear Approximation (BLA) techniques for estimating an FRF do...

This paper describes a human-in-the-loop experiment performed in TU Delft’s SIMONA Research Simulator to explicitly investigate the effects of biodynamic feedthrough (BDFT) on the execution of a two-dimensional touchscreen waypoint dragging task in turbulence. In the experiment, 16 participants performed the same task in a stationary simulator...
