Pilot Eye Gaze and Gesture tracking for Avionics Systems using Unobtrusive Solutions

PEGGASUS will create the first cockpit based crew monitoring system for enhanced flight safety, improved workload management and better crew awareness. To realize this goal we have brought together leading innovation technology companies, world class research institutes and key avionics experts.

The project will go beyond state-of-the-art artificial intelligence algorithms, that will be tailored with data collected from a dedicated vision system. Initial focus will be on flight safety and pilot comfort through eye-gaze analysis and hand gestures.

PEGGASUS, creating the first step forward to seamless cockpit interactions.
