Most haptic interfaces developed for aircraft control provide haptic support as an additional force on the control manipulator. This study revisits the active manipulator, which is a design concept that is different from but complementary to existing haptic interfaces. This control device sends the force that the pilot exerts on it to the...

We present a new accuracy condition for constructing mass-lumped elements. This condition is less restrictive than the one previously used and enabled us to construct new mass-lumped tetrahedral elements for 3D wave propagation modelling. The new degree-2 and degree-3 elements require significantly fewer nodes than previous versions and mass...

We hypothesized that an incorrect expectation due to spatial disorientation may induce roll reversal errors. To test this, an in-flight experiment was performed, in which forty non-pilots rolled wings level after receiving motion cues. A No-leans condition (subthreshold motion to a bank angle) was included, as well as a Leans-opposite condition ...

We analyse the dispersion properties of two types of explicit finite element methods for modelling acoustic and elastic wave propagation on tetrahedral meshes, namely mass-lumped finite element methods and symmetric interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin methods, both combined with a suitable Lax–Wendroff time integration scheme. The...

Objective: This study tested whether simulator-based training of pilot responses to unexpected or novel events can be improved by including unpredictability and variability in training scenarios. Background: Current regulations allow for highly predictable and invariable training, which may not be sufficient to prepare pilots for unexpected...

Ecological interface design (EID) was originally developed in the context of process control but has been extended into many domains where technology has resulted in both changing work demands and increased opportunities for improved interface applications. This paper gives an overview of the application of the EID to the control of vehicle...

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...

(Expected) adverse effects of the ‘ICT Revolution’ on work and opportunities for individuals to use and develop their capacities give a new impetus to the debate on the societal implications of technology and raise questions regarding the ‘responsibility’ of research and innovation (RRI) and the possibility of achieving ‘inclusive and...

Motion cueing algorithms are used in motion simulation to map the inertial vehicle motion onto the limited simulator motion space. This mapping causes mismatches between the unrestricted visual motion and the constrained inertial motion, which results in perceived motion incongruence (PMI). It is still largely unknown what exactly causes...

The human controller (HC) in manual control of a dynamical system often follows a visible and predictable reference path (target). The HC can adopt a control strategy combining closed-loop feedback and an open-loop feedforward response. The effects of the target signal waveform shape and the system dynamics on the human feedforward dynamics...

Understanding the spontaneous organization of atoms on well-defined surfaces promises to enable control over the shape and size of supported nanostructures. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) boasts atomic-scale control in the synthesis of thin films and nanoparticles. Yet, the possibility to control the shape of ALD-grown nanostructures remains...

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...

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...

Spectral elements with mass lumping allow for explicit time stepping and are therefore attractive for modelling seismic wave propagation. Their formulation on rectangular elements is straighforward, but for tetrahedra only elements up to degree 3 are known. To preserve accuracy after mass lumping, these elements require additional nodes that...

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...

Novel (semi-)automated systems are rapidly being introduced into modern road vehicles, but anticipating possibly critical human-machine interaction issues is difficult, because the human driver’s behavior is as of yet still poorly understood. This paper aims to improve our understanding and models of driver steering behavior on winding roads,...

In manual tracking tasks with preview of the target trajectory, humans have been modeled as dual-mode “near” and “far” viewpoint controllers. This paper investigates the physical basis of these two control mechanisms, and studies whether estimated viewpoint positions represent those parts of the previewed trajectory which humans use for control....

Eigenmode distortion (EMD) is a novel methodology developed to study the degradation of perceived vehicle dynamics as a result of motion cueing algorithms (MCA’s) applied in rotorcraft 2ight simulators. This paper brie2y introduces EMD and subsequently describes its application in a pilot-in-the-loop experiment conducted on the SIMONA Research...

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...

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...
