As air traffic controller workload is a bottleneck on air traffic growth, automation solutions have been proposed. This study investigates the effect of transparency on the acceptance of resolution advisories generated by an adaptive automation tool and the frustration experienced by controllers when using this tool. Two different kinds of...

Air Traffic Control (ATC) workload is the main limiting factor for air traffic growth. Although predicting workload is important, a proper objective ATC workload metric is still not available. Previous research has shown that using the solution space diagram as a workload prediction metric is promising. This metric is based on the concept that...

Introduction An aircraft breakdown, crew coming late, or bad weather conditions are examples of disruptions that airlines have to cope with on a daily basis. Even small disruptions might cause infeasibility of airline schedules. Currently, operation controllers of most airlines solve disruptions manually at the day of operation. They attempt to...

Airline revenue management aims to sell the seats on their planes to passengers at a price that is as close as possible to their maximum willingness to pay for a seat. In practice, airlines try to achieve this by creating a fare structure for the seats on their planes after which the seats are grouped under these different fares. Revenue...

Aviation contributes significantly to anthropogenic global warming, and one promising possibility for mitigation is climate-optimised routing. For the REACT4C project a novel approach was used to simulate the variation of aviation water vapour and NOx emission climate impact with location and weather patterns, but this is too computationally...

Aircraft noise is quantified in the aviation industry using the Effective Perceived Noise Level (EPNL) metric. In contrast to this community noise planning makes use of A-weighted decibel metrics such as LA and SEL. This research investigated the relationship between EPNL and the A-weighted metrics LA and SEL. This project was coupled with a...

Reinforcement learning is a paradigm for learning decision-making tasks from interaction with the environment. Function approximators solve a part of the curse of dimensionality when learning in high-dimensional state and/or action spaces. It can be a time-consuming process to learn a good policy in a high dimensional state space directly. A...

To investigate the effects of haptic feedback on the task-sharing performance during approach when using a Tunnel-in- the-Sky display, a within-subject simulated experiment with 12 participants was conducted in the SIMONA Research Simulator at Delft University of Technology. The experiment consisted of a primary Tunnel-in-the-Sky tracking task,...

The time-varying adaptation ability of human operators in basic manual-control tasks is barely understood. Most identification methods do not explicitly take into account any time variations. An identification procedure based on both batch and recursive autoregressive exogenous (ARX) models is presented for capturing the operator's controlled...

Multivariate simplex B-splines as a modelling technique provide more accurate models than standard polynomial models, which makes them an excellent modelling tool. Their coefficients, which are expressed in a barycentric coordinate system, are abstract. In this paper a physical transformation matrix is derived which can be applied to transform B...

A minimization of disturbance caused by aircraft noise events and a reduction of fuel consumption during the initial and final phase of flight. These are the two objectives that play an important role in the Flexible Runway Allocation Model. By taking into account fuel consumption alongside noise annoyance, this model enables to analyze and...

Counter Rotating Open Rotors are a possible response to the demands of future aviation propulsion. Their benefit of low fuel consumption grants operation particularly for rising kerosene price. Detrimental is the high level of noise emission, especially tonal sound. For prospective development and implementation to modern aviation, noise...

Reinforcement Learning is a much researched topic for autonomous machine behavior and is often applied to navigation problems. In order to deal with growing environments and larger state/action spaces, Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning has been introduced. Unfortunately learning from experience, which is central to Reinforcement Learning,...

Understanding the process of human motion perception is essential for optimizing the motion cueing algorithms (MCAs) used by motion simulators. Previous research has shown that different motion cueing error types can be distinguished, at least some of which are rated differently by humans for equal error magnitude. Optimizing a motion simulation...

With the growth of the air traffic movements and the population of people living around airports, the number of awakenings due to aircraft noise has increased. ICAO has defined four research fields to reduce noise and one of them is implementation of noise abatement operational procedures. This includes different trajectory optimization methods,...
