Augmented Reality in Cockpit

Master's Thesis Student: Tabášek Michal Academic Year: 2019/2020 Supervisor: Zemčík Pavel, prof. Dr. Ing.
Czech title
Upravená realita v kokpitu

This thesis deals with the usage of augmented reality in aviation. In this area, it focuses on the cockpit checklist used in each flight phase to ensure that all important tasks are performed. An experimental mobile application is developed to guide the pilot step by step through the cockpit checklist. Each step requires some action to be performed on a particular flight instrument located in the aircraft cockpit. The appropriate flight instrument, associated with the active task, is identified and tagged with a suitable visualization. The experimental application is implemented using the Unity engine and the AR Foundation framework. The implemented application has been tested during flight with positive feedback from participants.
