Emirates Enhances Safety and Training Optimisation

Emirates is working together with Seeing Machines, an industry leader in computer vision-based technologies, to use advanced gaze tracking technology to better understand how pilots interact and monitor instruments during certain identified real-time procedures that could potentially pose safety risks.

The findings will enable Emirates to enhance training for flight deck crew to prepare for a wide range of scenarios in the air.

Actual training environments and scenarios are made to enhance the quality of the data collected whereby the companies used non-intrusive eye and head-tracking technology to collect gaze data from a sample of Emirates line pilots, whilst flying standard training scenarios in Emirates flight simulators.
