The Cockpit Of The Future

Cockpit ODICIS
Recently Thales has organized a great show of new technologies in Paris last week. The French group has exhibited there their latest research in innovation and in particular a concept called Avionics cockpit of the future in 2020, which was presented previously for the first time at the Paris Air Show in June 2013.

 The airline will undergo changes that will change the sector in the next ten years; the air traffic will explode, constraints in emissions of carbon dioxide will harden and those of noise pollution, also the mobility needs of people will increase the cost optimization research. To operate in this uncertain future and anticipate challenges, the answers are found on the side of innovation and research.

Avionics 2020 program is one such program to meet the future needs and demands in the aviation field. Natural evolution demonstrator ODICIS acronym for One Display for a Cockpit Interactive Solution, started by Thales in 2009, it is a concept of new generation cockpit dedicated to commercial aviation. The Avionics 2020 incorporates the latest technologies for interaction and steering assistance functions.

This ultra modern cockpit could be implemented operationally in the next few years. In an aircraft equipped with this Thales ODICIS cockpit, the pilot will be able to operate the device in a natural and intuitive way through man-machine interface designed to serve in this field. Recent technologies such as touch screen, widescreen, reconfigurable control systems, high head and low duotone head for better organization and discrimination data digital display.

The crew will also have access to touch-screen technology to manage certain camera functions. Thales devotes 20% of its turnover in research. The company has 25,000 including 3,000 engineers dedicated to R & T. So what are researchers, scientific organizations and global specialists in human-machine interface that work together to produce a cockpit that manages to merge data from different systems - avionics and others - and present the pilot seamlessly. The cockpit of the future will help the humans in decision making, especially in stressful situations.
