- Project Description: The purpose of this project is to explore integrating the human body into identifying vehicle system failures. It will explore the potential benefits of being able to use human operator physiological and behavioral signals to detect vehicle failures. Within current aerospace vehicle systems, failure detection is limited and may not be able to detect failures they were not designed to. With this in mind, failure detection may be easier and possibly more accurate if the pilot's physiological and behavioral signals are integrated into the system. This research may be able to help detect system failures earlier and improve flight safety.
