2nd STRESS simulation video now online!
The video of the second simulation of STRESS is now online, follow this link to have a look of it!
The video presents the execution of the validation sessions, held at the ENAC premises in Toulouse in February.
The sessions had the objective of assessing the impact of high automation on the workload, vigilance, attention and stress levels of the air traffic controllers. A total of 20 air traffic controllers, both experts and students, took part in the validation activities, and were asked to manage a realistic operational scenario developed to induce transitions between different levels of automation as well as automation malfunctions. The users’ neurophysiological signals were recorded continuously.
The data collected are now under analysis to assess how automation impacts on the execution of air traffic management tasks. Based on these results we will derive high level automation design guidelines intended to optimize the cooperation between the human and the system.
The video shows the experimental subjects managing the simulated air traffic, and the recording of the data. Many thanks again to all the subjects participating in our experiment! Enjoy watching!
