STRESS @ART (Agency Research Team) workshop

STRESS, along with other projects like MOTO and TaCo, will take part in the next workshop organised by EUROCONTROL’s Agency Research Team (ART) and taking place on the 24th of October in Vienna at Frequentis headquarters.

The workshop focusses on Automation in Air Traffic Management (ATM) and specifically addressing aspects of higher degrees of automation and autonomy in ATM, including:

  • airport and surface management,
  • air transport system as a whole, and
  • human factors aspects of automation.

Participation of non-ART members is encouraged, as ART actively seeks attendance from researchers interested and knowledgeable in the subject matter under discussion. To attend the event, please visit the event page.


The Agency Research Team (ART) is an advisory body of the EUROCONTROL Agency. It disseminates research topics, projects and results with relevance for Air Traffic Management (ATM) amongst its members and reviews the Agency’s research work programme from a strategic as well as from a technical perspective.

ART focusses specifically on the Agency’s contribution to the SESAR programme, ACARE initiatives and Flightpath 2050, ensuring convergence of initiatives, alignment with Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) requirements and the non-duplication of resources. Its embraces issues specific to ATM while addressing influencing factors and the impact air transport and aerospace have on ATM, including societal considerations and the integration of transport modes.



Special thanks to Rita Markovits-Somogyi and SESAR for mentioning STRESS!

We are glad to announce that STRESS has been mentioned in the last SESAR e-news!

The news is an interview to Rita Markovits-Somogyi, who is one of nine independent academics making up the SESAR 2020 Scientific Committee. The interview addresses successes and future challenges of the SESAR research on Air Traffic Management.

In the interview, Rita regards STRESS as one of the most promising projects in the current SESAR exploratory research portfolio.

The STRESS Consortium is really proud of it and sincerely thanks Rita and SESAR!



Video on the STRESS validation now online!

The video about the STRESS validation is now online on the youtube channel of STRESS! Watch it at this link or below!

The video presents the execution of the validation sessions, held at the Anadolu University in June.

The sessions had the objective of validating the neurophysiological indexes of stress and attention in air traffic control. A total of 16 air traffic control students took part in the validation activities, and were asked to manage a realistic operational scenario developed to induce different levels of attention and stress. The users’ neurophysiological signals were recorded continuously, and the data collected then compared with behavioural and performance data (looking at how controllers handled the traffic) and subjective data (feedback from experimental subjects and external experts) to verify that the indices are capable of assessing attention and stress.

The video shows the experimental subjects managing the simulated air traffic, and the recording of the data. Enjoy watching!
