Abstract:

After having stated all the requirements for man-machine interface in modern cockpit, taking into account all the operational requirements, and also the physiological and environmental constraints, the emphasis is put on visual displays, more precisely on the HUD. How they are realized, the informations which are presented to the pilot and the physiological problems encountered are discussed such as effects of G and vertigo. New systems are also cited such as Helmet Mounted Display HMD or Night Vision Goggles NVG. Both are still under development. We also address the need for simulators and the physiological problems associated with their use.
