Abstract

With the development of these new interfaces, such as Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen), and the evolution of the United States National Air System (NAS) from a ground-based system of Air Traffic Control (ATC) to a satellite-based system of air traffic management (FAA, 2009), new evaluations for efficiency and safety are required. Therefore, these tasks require visual behaviors such as search, fixation, tracking, and grouping. Therefore, designing and implementing a virtual eye movement application that generates gaze and action visualizations could provide detailed data on the allocation of visual attention across interface entities.The goal is to develop state-machine representations of straight-and-level flight, turns, climbs and descents within the Pilot Eye Flight Deck Application to simulate pilots' eye movement.
