The Flying-V is a V-shaped airplane, which uses less fuel due its form. Passengers are in the oval cabin in the wing, which asks for an alternative design to the interior as the cabin is not in the flying direction. At the same time there is a demand for more comfortable interiors. 80 students were asked to develop interior design ideas for this...

Human modelling approaches are typically limited to feedback-only, compensatory tracking tasks. Advances in system identification techniques allow us to consider more realistic tasks that involve feedforward and even precognitive control. In this paper we study the human development of a feedforward control response while learning to...
