Action Plan for the future of Mobility in Europe (MOBILITY4EU)

Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

Global socio-economic and environmental megatrends are urging for a paradigm shift in mobility and transport that involves disruptive technologies and multimodal solutions. The individual transport sectors face diverse technical and non-technical requirements and rather individual, sometimes contradicting challenges. An action plan for the coherent implementation of innovative transport and mobili ...

Future Sky Safety

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

The EC Flight Path 2050 vision aims to achieve the highest levels of safety to ensure that passengers and freight as well as the air transport system and its infrastructure are protected. However, trends in safety performance over the last decade indicate that the ACARE Vision 2020 safety goal of an 80% reduction of the accident rate is not being achieved. A stronger focus on safety is required. T ...

Take Control (TaCo)

Start date: Jun 20, 2016, End date: Jun 19, 2018,

TACO aims to define an automated system sufficiently powerful to both accomplish complex tasks involved in the management of surface movements in a major airport and self-assess its own ability to deal with non-nominal conditions. When needed, such system should be sensitive enough to transfer responsibilities for traffic management back to the controller, in a timely and graceful manner and in wa ...

the embodied reMOte Tower (MOTO)

Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2018,

ATM Human Performance research has been traditionally focused on two senses: sight and hearing. Remote tower operations make no exception, with many efforts and resources focused on acquisition of visual images, for instance by means of hi-resolution cameras (SESAR requs here). This situation is often understood by adopting traditional human information processing approaches, where human cognition ...

Participatory Architectural Change Management in ATM Systems (PACAS)

Start date: Mar 1, 2016, End date: Feb 28, 2018,

Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems are large systems-of-systems that are managed via multiple layers (e.g., operational, organizational, technical) to better handle their complexity. Due to their tight interdependencies, any change introduced in either of these layers triggers changes in other layers. As such, change management in ATM systems is a difficult task and requires to know the full imp ...

Ecological Lifestyles for CO2 Reduction (EcoLife)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2016,

Background Measures to buffer climate change are at the core of the EU’s 2020 strategy for sustainable growth. However, Italian public opinion is less accepting of the need to tackle climate change than elsewhere in Europe, as shown by the 2011 EU Survey on Climate Change. This revealed that Italian public opinion downplays the potential consequences of ...

Advanced Cockpit for Reduction Of StreSs and workload (ACROSS)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Jun 30, 2016,

Outstanding safety level of air transport is partly due to the two pilots standard. However situations where difficult flight conditions, system failures or cockpit crew incapacitation lead to peak workload conditions.The amount of information and actions to process may then exceed the crew capacity. Systems alleviating crew workload would improve safety.ACROSS Advanced Cockpit for Reduction of St ...

PROactive Safety PERformance for Operations (PROSPERO)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2015,

Whilst a vision of zero deaths for air travel may seem unattainable it could be the goal of all involved in air traffic systems (ATS.) To get closer to this vision requires innovation and a different approach. In Vision 2020 the EU set a goal of reducing the air travel accident rate by 80%. The implementation of PROSPERO will provide an advanced systemic methodology for managing the improvement pr ...

Human Factors in Risk-Based Ship Design Methodology (FAROS)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2015,

Up to 96% of maritime accidents (collision, grounding, fire, occupational accidents) are routinely attributed to human error. However, rather than assessing the ship performance in terms of global design factors such as ship motions and noise, the human element studies have primarily focused on local design features (e.g., bridge design) that are relatively easy to fix and tune towards required ef ...
