THE EMBODIED REMOTE TOWER

EXPLORATORY CONCEPTS
FOR AUGMENTED MULTIPLE REMOTE TOWERS

MOTO is a research Project co-founded by SESAR in the framework of the Horizon 2020 program. The project targeted the exploration of the Remote Tower concept enhanced by considering human performance from the perspective of “embodied cognition”, with the goal of augmenting the human-system interaction via multimodal technologies. The use of multimodal technologies in remote tower operations is a promising avenue to maintain a high level of situation awareness and control, by partially off-loading the visual channel and relying on other sensory channels (i.e. audio or haptic feedback) for monitoring out-of-the-current-view airports.

MOTO presented an initial testing of a set of working prototypes of multimodal solutions aimed to enhance the sense of presence and to augment Human Performance in two validation settings of increased fidelity (3D Virtual reality and RTO platform). A set of innovative multimodal concepts were also derived and not yet validated. The concepts are presented in this website.
