The Sixth Sense of an Air Traffic Controller.
In: Proceedings of the SESAR Innovation Days online, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

The project Sixth Sense postulates that the users body language is different at "good" and "bad" decisions. Therefore, in Sixth Sense we are looking for patterns or hidden data signs that allow us to detect moments of bad and good decisions that could be incorporated in an automated system in order to detect and eventually predict the next actions of a user. In our case the user is an Air Traffic Controller (ATCO). Specifically, we intend to analyse the correlation between the change in the ATCO's behaviour - expressed through his body language - and the quality of his/her decision. For that, an experiment was set up to collect, explore and analyse data about the user behaviour. The results of our work may be used for early warnings for upcoming "bad" situations or decision aids for ATCOs.
