Successful finish of PEGGASUS and summary

We are happy to report that our aviation project PEGGASUS (Pilot Eye Gaze and Gesture tracking for Avionics Systems using Unobtrusive Solutions) successfully finished.

We would like to thank all partners involved in the project for the extensive efforts to finish the project successfully and deliver the results despite all the Covid-related restrictions and hurdles.

You can find a summary of the project outcomes at the EU Cordis Portal:

“The PEGGASUS consortium has developed a multi-camera vision system for tracking eye-gaze and gestures of the pilots in real time in the cockpit environment. This system allows a leap towards a more comprehensive human-machine interface in the cockpit to reduce the stress and cognitive load of the pilots, while bringing forward future pilot training techniques. Better awareness of the instruments will help the flight management to optimize trajectories and better manage fuel use, in line with the overall objectives of the Clean Sky JU.”
