We live in a world that is constantly changing. The bond between humans and technology is ever-expanded and the more technology evolves the more we will be able to support our clients.
The design of a human-machine interface (HMI) can be as vital to a product's success as the design of the product itself. HMI's have made important contributions to the success of countless products across the spectrum of industries ranging from the most sought-after consumer products to advanced military and aerospace equipment.
TXT, thanks to its different teams, is able to combine technical expertise with creative and digital skills in order to develop HMI capable of being both functional and engaging, making the user experience highly satisfying, engaging and immersive.
Technological advances in avionic system and components have facilitated the introduction of progressively more integrated and automated Human-Machine Interfaces and Interactions on-board civil and military aircraft.
In order to create the best HMIs, our development teams build solutions starting from two basic questions:
how do we communicate with the machine?
how does the machine communicate with us?
These two modes of communication are integrated and conveyed in a single language thanks to the study of the best technological solutions and the best representation of information in accordance with the UI/UX logic.
Within this scenario, TXT's greatest challenge in the HMI field is to constantly achieve new results and targets in relation to the cockpit design, studying how to present information to the pilot and in relation to automation design, answering the question of who should do what, in dividing the task of flying between humans and computers.
A Head Up Display (HUD) is a way to presenting information to the pilot in the line of their external forward vision which projects key flight instrument data onto a small "see-through" screen positioned just in front of the pilot line of sight looking ahead out of the aircraft.
The applied benefits of a HUD to transport aircraft flight safety have been seen mainly as the enhancement of situation awareness for flight in limited (or night) visibility in the vicinity of visible terrain, water, ground-based obstacles or other aircraft. This is because it is possible to maintain an external lookout without losing access to key aircraft instrumentation.
