Modeling Memory Effects in the Operation of Advanced Flight Management Systems

Lüdtke, Andreas and Osterloh, Jan-Patrick
The objective of the HUMAN project is to develop virtual test pilots for cockpit systems, in order to improve the human error analysis during cockpit system design. Virtual test pilots should supplement simulator-based testing of new cockpit systems with human pilots, by providing the possibility to simulate human behavior in early design phases. In this paper we will present how we modeled and tested four relevant basic capabilities, necessary for the simulation of pilot behavior, namely crew coordination, sophisticated perception, reactive behavior and multitasking.
