World ATM Congress 2017

MOTO will take part in the World ATM Congress 2017, to be held in Madrid, 7-9 March 2017.

In such context, MOTO will participate into a public workshop on the “SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research: Human Factors supporting Automation in ATM”, to be held on the 09th of March at FABEC Theatre. The workshop will present different approaches to analysing human factors in highly automated ATC environments and proposing solutions to address potential adverse effects as well. The event is oriented to all the ATM professionals interested in the effects of automation on the human performance. Participation is free and open to everyone.

Projects involved in the workshop

In order to achieve the workshop’s goals, it is essential that projects dealing with Human factors in automation and under several topics present their results. Therefore, the event includes:

  • Five projects on Automation, robotics and autonomy. They will present their research on the effects of automation on human factors (AUTOPACE, TACO, AGENT, STRESS, MINIMA).
  • In addition, two projects from the topic High-performing airport operations, presenting its human factors assessment on augmented reality application (RETINA) and the exploration of key multimodal stimuli to enhance the sense of presence experience by ATCOs in remote towers (MOTO).
  • Finally, a project within the Innovative ATM architecture. It will present how the ATM system could appropriately implement the achievements the project identified in automation (PACAS).
