Abstract

Companies like Aero Glass are reinventing the world of aviation through technologies that allow us to “see” in a whole new way. From its maintenance to classroom applications to real-world flying, these revolutionary new “mixed reality” augmentation reality systems are promising to become the next evolution of safety technology in the aviation industry. Building on advancements with Head’s Up Display (HUD) technology, Aero Glass developers are making it possible to “see” through the machine, or into layers of airspace, or inside the cockpit in virtual reality. Imagine the training benefits of highlighting items on the checklist while training a student pilot on a virtual flight deck, or viewing airspace restrictions in real time while flying. The potential for safety advances through this technology could be groundbreaking for pilots flying in ever-increasingly congested airspace, inside ever-increasingly complex aircraft. The interface between automation, augmented reality, and the human mind have posed challenges in the past; this type of new technology could help bridge the gap between human and machine.
