Presenters from the STRESS and MOTO projects, along with representatives from European air traffic control organisations, explored the topic of “How the roles and tasks of ATCOs will change in the future with increased information complexity and higher automation levels”.
Research highlights addressed the right balance between human and automation, taking into account the continuous improvement of human performance, in high performing operational scenarios such as the Remote Tower Operations.
A demonstration session was carried out in the afternoon, and consisted in the presentation of STRESS, MOTO and TACO validation environments and selected prototypes. This session provided a unique opportunity to see potential cross-fertilisation initiatives. The lessons learnt and future needs for closer integration of automation design and human factors research were a focal point of the discussions.
We were also very happy to host a keynote speaker: Jean Louis Garcia from French Civil Aviation.
Stakeholders provided positive feedback on the project results, and also gave advice for the application of the STRESS approach. In particular, they highlighted that the mental state measurement toolbox developed by STRESS could be applied at several ATM organizational levels, as follows:
This feedback will be taken onboard by STRESS to design possible follow-up research activities.
On the other hand, they highlighted as possible drawbacks:
These will be taken into consideration by STRESS as recommendations and lessons learnt.
