The MINIMA project was presented to a public audience during the public workshop “SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research: Human Factors supporting Automation in ATM” held at the World ATM Congress (WAC) in Madrid from 7 to 9 March 2017. The WAC is organized by SESAR JU, EUROCONTROL, CANSO and ATCA and provides an excellent international platform for different ATM stakeholders with world-class conferences, workshops and a large-scale exhibition. The workshop was on opportunity for different SESAR Exploratory Research Projects on human factors in highly automated ATC environments to present themselves. Andreas Hasselberg introduced the MINIMA project to the audience and gave a detailed presentation about the MINIMA concept, its progress so far and further planning. MINIMA was presented along with the following projects: AGENT – Adaptive Self-Governed aerial ecosystem by negotiated traffic MOTO – The embodied reMOte TOwer PACAS – Participatory Architectural Change MAnagement in ATM Systems RETINA – Resilient Synthetic Vision for Advanced Control Tower Air Navigation Service Provision STRESS – Human performance neurometrics Toolbox for highly automated systems design TaCo – Take Control We would like to thank the AUTOPACE team for doing a great job on organizing the workshop. It was a great opportunity to communicate with the other project teams and further elaborate our communalities in the spirit of cooperation. We are looking forward to meeting all of you again very soon.
The Concept Description (D1.2) was completed on February 17th. The full document can also be found in the documents section. Based on the State of the Art Report (D1.1) which analysed the out-of-the-loop phenomenon, related problems, how to detect them and how to mitigate them, this document describes the MINIMA concept. It gives details about the highly automated Terminal Manoeuvring Area selected as case study and about the route structure and procedures defined for this environment. Additionally, it describes the adaptation mechanisms that are planned to be implemented into this task environment and analysed in the MINIMA project. Additionally, the document provides information about the technical implementation of the vigilance and attention measurement that will be used to trigger adaptation of the task environment. Specifically, details about the measurement and processing of data are given. This document will be a guideline for the development of the task environment and the Vigilance and Attention Controller (D2.1) during work package 2 and will also be an input for the planning of the evaluation in work package 3.
