Display Panel Design of a General Utility Helicopter by Applying Quantitative and Qualitative Approaches

Senol, Mehmet Burak
Cilingir, Canan
The flight deck is the ultimate human-machine interface application. It uses human senses of touch and sight in a safety-critical situation. Display systems, present on a flight deck, are complex environments causing excessive mental workload, and the consequences of errors can be catastrophic. To prevent any human error, a user-friendly display panel must be designed. In this research the best natural dialog between the crew and interface is considered while reflecting user perspective to design by applying quantitative and qualitative approaches; in this way, proper positions of analogue indicators on the front of the display panel are determined. Multi-Criteria Decision Making algorithms are employed as a quantitative approach. To test whether the decision-making preferences are consistent with a quasi-concave, a quasi-convex, and a linear utility function, a combined algorithm is applied. Due to the form of utility function, an algorithm finding the most preferred alternative of decision making is used. The aim of this approach is to find an order in which to locate each indicator to suitable classes. Card-Sorting methodology is used for the qualitative research of the same problem. Results of two different approaches are compared. (C) 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.


Dynamic approach to wind sensitive optimum cruise phase flight planning
Yıldız, Güray; Kayalıgil, Sinan; Department of Operational Research (2012)
A Flight Management System (FMS) performs 4 Dimensional flight planning; Lateral Planning (Calculation of the latitude and longitudes of waypoints), Vertical Planning (Calculation of the altitudes of waypoints) and Temporal Planning(Calculation of Estimated Time of Arrival). Correct and accurate calculation of4D flight path and then guiding the pilot/airplane to track the route in specified accuracy limits in terms of lateral (i.e Required Navigational Performance RNP), vertical (Reduced Vertical Seperation...
Evaluation of Cockpit Design by Using Quantitative and Qualitative Tools
Senol, Mehmet Burak; DAĞDEVİREN, METİN; KURT, MUSTAFA; Cilingir, Canan (2009-12-11)
Cockpit displays and the controls are sophisticated human machine interface applications. Display systems, present at cockpits are complex environments causing excessive mental workload and the consequences of errors can be catastrophic. In order to prevent any human error a user-friendly display panel must be designed. In this study quantitative and qualitative approaches are used to evaluate the positions of analogue indicators at front display panel from human factors point of view. Multi Criteria Decisi...
Path verification in software-defined networks using programmable data planes
Bostan, Hakan; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2022-1)
Software-Defined Networks (SDNs) revamp the traditional network architectures by segregating the data plane and control plane and introducing a programmable and log- ically centralized control plane. Although SDNs bring along extensive improvements, as well as solutions to some of the network security problems, the security of SDN itself is often overlooked. Especially the security of the data plane is often overlooked because of the widespread assumption that the data plane devices are trusted. How- ever, ...
Simulator based evaluation of adaptive envelope protection algorithms for active sidestick controllers
Ünal, Zeynep; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, a simulator environment with an active control system is developed for testing different force feedback maps for flight envelope limit avoidance. Previously developed flight envelope protection algorithm; named direct adaptive limit margin estimation method is improved with Single Hidden Layer Neural Network. Neural network based adaptive models are developed online using concurrent learning algorithm for weight update laws. Concurrent learning method uses both current data and recorded past...
Aircraft motion dynamics and lateral trajectory tracking algorithm design for the enhancement of flight safety
Günhan, Cahide Yeliz; Demirbaş, Kerim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
This thesis aspires to cover the fundamentals of an aircraft control for Flight Management System (FMS). FMS, trajectory tracking and performance requirements of a flight are the focal points of the thesis. In view of this, the thesis consists of the outlined components to achieve its goal; (i) generating paths - which denotes the creation of reference paths for trajectory by complying with the avionic performance standardizations, (ii) controlling the aircraft – which propagates the control commands by usi...
