IEEE GB Section: Pre-flight Inspection and Briefing for Training Aircraft Pilots using Augmented Reality

October 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CDT


                      Joint Meeting of YP Group and new I&S section Chapter

WEDNESDAY October 10th, 7:00-8:30 PM

University of Houston Clear Lake -Delta Building-Room D241

SPECIAL PRESENTATION: Pre-flight Inspection and Briefing for

Training Aircraft Pilots using Augmented Reality”


SPEAKER: Dr. Simone Keller Füchter

University Estácio de Sá-SC and Unisul University, BRAZIL  


PRESENTATION: Augmented Reality is a technology that allows the insertion of virtual elements, such as video or three-dimensional objects, in a real environment while the participant uses a mobile phone, a tablet, a personal computer or Virtual Reality Glasses.

The presentation will talk a new prototype, that shows the aircraft, in life-size (if you want) for training pilots when they are doing the pre-flight external inspection and the pre-flight briefing. Using Augmented Reality, the pilot can use a regular smartphone (in a more sophisticated version, we can use a VR glasses like a Hololens) .It helps the future pilot be more perceptive and fast to learn some procedures and be comfortable with the aircraft´s panel and avionics.
