Currently, I am the student of CS in aviation. My project is about research in UI for board system (Boeing).
Now I have the necessary technical documentation and examples of current interfaces (to define weak places mostly) but I have no opportunity to speak with potential customers/pilots. However, I have an experience in programming to build some lightweight simulator propose it for testing in my university.
So, are there anybody with the experience for aircraft/automotive interfaces? What should I read first or to be familiar with? What are sticking points there?
- How to define main indicators to show (in what place, their representation type)
1.1. Process of prototyping for ECAM 1.2. Process of prototyping for engine monitors
- Pilot's perception and cognitive loading (some articles or books on this topic) There is usually aircraft flight manual, where described limitations and technical issues. How can use it for signal conditions and displaying it? In what way I can "merge" signals (so the interface has fewer controls and instruments?) Look at the pictures below
