The HoliDes Final Event will be hosted by Airbus Defence and Space in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on September 29th. The event celebrates the conclusion of the HoliDes project where 31 partners from the industry, research institutes and universities in seven European countries investigated in an innovative Human Factors engineering process that can be embedded into traditional System Engineering processes to develop safety critical systems.
The work entitled "Cognitive Workload Classification using Eye-tracking and EEG Data", written by the HoliDes project partners Tecnalia Research and Innovation, Scienza Nuova Research Centre, and Honeywell, is going to be presented at the International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction in Aerospace to be held in Paris on September 14-16, 2016 (http://research.fit.edu/hci-aero/HCI-Aero2016/home.html).
Two HoliDes articles are going to be presented at the 32nd Conference of the European Association for Aviation Psychology (EEAP), in Cascais, Portugal, on September 26-30, 2016 (http://conference.eaap.net/). The first one is signed by partner HFC Human-Factors-Consult GmbH: "Break it down! A practitioner’s software tool for Human Factors Task Analysis and Human Error Identification", about the concept and application of a software tool develped within the HoliDes project for task analysis and human error identification.
Two HoliDes works have been presented at the 7th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE 2016, http://www.ahfe2016.org/) in Orlando, 27-31 July 2016. The first article is entitled " Implementation of Human System Integration into the System Engineering Lifecycle and Model Based System Engineering at Airbus Defence and Space", by Robert Sharples from Airbus Defence and Space UK.
The Human Factors User Group (http://open-services.net/wiki/human-factors/) has been created by the HoliDes project partners to the aim of discussing within the OSLC (Open Service for Lifecycle Collaboration) community the integration of lifecycle human factors tools in the system development process. The Human Factors User Group main goal is indeed to explore and to understand the integration scenarios that would improve traceability between human factors related work and traditional engineering data.
During the ETSI meeting of the Technical Committee Human Factors, Martin Böcker from Airbus Defence and Space presented the work carried out in HoliDes about the Airbus Control Room AdCoS and the proximity-based interaction technologies employed in that AdCoS.
The HoliDes results presented by Martin have been appreciated by the Technical Committee. They will consider the experiences gained by the HoliDes work if and when they update the ETSI Guide on roadmaps for novel interaction technologies (ETSI EG 202 848 V1.1.1 (2011-02), www.etsi.org).
Two papers about HoliDes achievements will be presented at the 6th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AFHE2015) : (1) "Implementation of Human System Integration (HSI) and ‘non-functional characteristics’ into the systems engineering lifecycle - A practical approach at Airbus Defence and Space", by Robert Sharples, and (2) "Enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of control room operators – A roadmap-based approach for selecting interaction technologies for defence and safety-critical organisations and industries", by Martin Boecker.
Holides consortium meeting will be held in Berlin hosted by TAKATA
from: March, 11 (Wednesday) 13:30 till Friday, 13.3. 16:00
The day *before* the Consortium Meeting will be the ARTEMIS Co-Summit (also in Berlin) that HoliDes will participate (like all ARTEMIS projects) with a booth (from March 10th 9:00 till March 11th 16:00).
From Oct. 15th to Oct 17th 2014, more than 20 engineers and researchers from the HOLIDES consortium (CRF, TWT, ATOS, OFFIS, IBEO, HONEYWELL, etc.) attended a workshop in Paris at La Cité Internationale dedicated on two software tools, ProSIVIC and RTMaps, respectively provided by CIVITEC and INTEMPORA. These tools will used for the developments, tests and software integration of various AdCoS in the frame of the project.
The third technical meeting of the HoliDes project took place in Naples, at the Suor Orsola Benincasa University, from May 7th to May 9th 2014. The first day was devoted to the "Tool Workshop" event. Each tool vendor first introduced his tool briefly to all project partners in the plenary meeting room. After that, the participants moved to the workshop area where the vendors had a stand and, where needed, a table for laptop demos.
Holides General Assembly in Madrid
From 22 to 24 January, HoliDes project’s General Asembly was successfully held on Madrid. All consortium partners attended and succesfully worked.
