Advanced audio, tactile, and visual warning systems in aircraft cockpits.
Input from Allan Dunville, Bombardier?
- Proliferation of caution/warning systems and alerts overwhelming the perceptual and cognitive abilities of the flight crew in critical phases of flight
- Changing crew workload
- Decreased situational awareness
- Failure to harmonize/optimize certification requirements for caution/warning systems including coordination and prioritization for multiple alert conditions.
- Differences among automation use policies among different airlines may affect caution/warning implementations.Consideration of prioritization, total workload, and required situational awareness must precede implementation of such systems.
- NextGen/SESAR hazard condition: Conformance Monitor generates excessive false / nuisance alerts. Associated human performance hazards:
- Flight crew ignores accurate conformance alert and fails to issue corrective instructions for a true alert.
- Flight crew becomes overly reliant on automation, fails to notice deviation when not alerted.
- Flight crew fails to confirm validity of conformance alert.
