A Flight Guidance Display Format on Smart Glasses for Private Pilots

A Flight Guidance Display Format on Smart Glasses for Private Pilots Keeping the pilot eyes-out is important, especially ingeneral aviation (GA), because pilots mostly fly under visual flight rules(VFR).

Abstract

Keeping the pilot eyes-out is important, especially ingeneral aviation (GA), because pilots mostly fly under visual flight rules(VFR). In this study, a display format for smart glasses was developed. Besidesthe primary flight state information, a curved arrow shows the pilot when toturn and dynamically straightens when the turn should be terminated. Thebehavior of the display format was developed to guide the pilot in a VFR trafficpattern. A reduction of in flight technical error and missed signals in asecondary task demonstrated the potential of the display format in GAapplications. Subjective workload did not significantly change. Results suggestthat low-cost consumer smart glasses used in GA could have the potential tosupport pilots in the future.
