During flights, pilots have to manage difficult situations while facing an increasing system complexity due to the amount and the nature of available information. The idea of Co2Team, Cognitive Collaboration for Teaming, is that a system based on artificial intelligence can provide efficient support to the pilot with the use of cognitive computing. The main objective of the project is to propose a technological and methodological transition to a more autonomous flight transport based on a progressive crew reduction. Co2Team will develop the roadmap of cognitive computing to assist the pilot for future air transport. This transition will be based on an innovative bidirectional communication paradigm and an optimized shared authority (human-machine) using the potential of the cognitive computing (pilot monitoring, environment and situation understanding, enhanced assistance, adaptive automation).
The project partners are the department Augmented Vision at DFKI, Deutsche Lufthansa AG and the Institut Polytechnique de Bordeaux (INP Bordeaux).
The first meeting of the project took place on January 8th, 2019, in the premises of the INP Bordeaux. During the meeting, the participants could test an existing flight simulator and discuss possible developments of simulators for the project.
