Abstract

Aircraft ground operations at airports with complex and busy taxiway systems cause a significant amount of inefficient fuel burn as well as exhaust gas and noise emissions while additionally often producing delays. Ongoing research activities investigate new technologies for moving airplanes fuel-efficiently without using the main engines. Moreover, the implementation of trajectory-based taxi operations for reduced taxi times is analyzed. The aim of this paper is to introduce a concept that combines these two aspects by suggesting trajectory-based automated dispatch towing operations using a robotic tractor for the airport in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The paper presents an approach to innovative dispatch towing procedures, which consists of a requirement analysis backed by observations, expert interviews, and a user forum with representative stakeholders. The resulting concept serves as a basis for the development of a human-machine interface (HMI) supporting the cockpit crew during the newly defined trajectory-based taxi operations. Structured pilot interviews lead to a conceptual HMI design for further investigation.
