CAAi is working as part of a consortium led by Spanish artificial intelligence (AI) specialists, Innaxis, to evaluate the human factors and safety considerations in the transition to digital assistants and AI-run aviation operations.
The three-year SafeTeam project, funded by Horizon Europe, the European Union’s research and innovation programme and supported by UK Research and Innovation, will advance research in human factors concerning the use of digital assistants.
The consortium, comprised of ten organisations from across Europe, will work together to evaluate the technology and processes needed to facilitate the safe adoption of AI tools, their integration into operations, and the safe interaction with human operators. The project will focus on:
- Digital assistant applications in Flight Deck and Air Traffic Control operations
- Human factors and performance for safe, resilient human/machine collaboration
- Digital assistant toolbox enabling seamless HM cooperation
- Regulatory approval and certification, AI explainability
By the end of the project, SafeTeam will deliver new human-machine interaction concepts and answer the technical and safety challenges to achieve Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6, with human operators at the heart of its research.
Led by regulators from the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA), CAAi will conduct investigative regulatory approval and certification tasks, focused on the human ability to operate sophisticated AI tools and the explainability of AI operations.
