STRESS validation now started!
The STRESS validation study has officially started at the Anadolu University premises.
The objective of the study is to monitor in real-time via neurophysiological indexes the controllers’ mental status, with particular reference to attention and stress, during air traffic control tasks in different automation levels.
Sixteen students in Air Traffic Control are involved as experimental subjects. They are asked to manage a realistic operational scenario, simulating the Istanbul en-route airspace and partially implementing the Free Route Airspace concept.
Several instruments are engaged to monitor their mental status, including questionnaires and neurophysiological measurement tools.
