Investigations on boundary avoidance tracking and pilot inceptor workload

Abstract: Handling qualities research largely depends on the understanding of the pilot's behaviour in the control loop. Conventional pilot models are based on the idea that the pilot tries to achieve target conditions, e.g. a specific attitude. In 2004, Gray introduced the so-called boundary avoidance tracking theory which considers the pilot as someone who tracks away from threatening conditions (boundaries) when they become dominant. In the frame of a preliminary simulator study with five test subjects, the flight te… Show more

“…The experimental piloting task was designed to effect fine variation in cognitive load, instead of gross variation. The pilot pitch tracking task was superimposed with constantly closing boundary to bring in gradual increase in cognitive load in fine steps (Niewind, 2011). In the following subsections, we have described our study in detail.…”

“…Gray (2005) hypothesized that the boundary avoidance tracking theory which considers the pilot tracks the boundaries imposed in flying when they become dominant in terms of threatening conditions. In the frame of a preliminary simulator study with five participants, the flight test technique which is associated with boundary avoidance tracking was performed by Niewind (2011), and the concept was investigated in detail (Blake, 2009). Niewind's study confirmed that the new technique can systematically and gradually raise the pilot gains in a buildup fashion.…”
