Being in the Sky: Framing Tangible and Embodied Interaction for Future Airliner Cockpits

Abstract : In order to contribute to a design for future airline cockpits that can address the limitations of touch-based interfaces, we analyze tangible dimensions of cockpit activity based on observations and pilot interviews. Working from these data, using TEI theory and concepts of phenomenology, we discuss the implications for tangible design of our findings. We found that the status of sensation in perception, the required level of control in actions, the safety issues using physical objects and the restricted mode of externalization, raise challenges for tangible design. Accordingly, we discuss key concepts for the design of the future cockpit, such as the use of a protected space where interaction may involve compressed externalization, rhythmic structures and customized context-aware adaptations. • Human-centered computing~Human computer interaction (HCI) • Human-centered computing~HCI design and evaluation methods • Human-centered computing~Field studies
