Haptics & SpeechRec
As part of Elis' Open Italy '22 program, Betadynamiq collaborated with Leonardo to enhance the effectiveness of its flight simulation product through the development of software that connected to a wearable, i.e., an armband that will be placed on the pilot's wrist, is able to enable a number of additional features.
To have modulable haptic feedback following the completion of the action on the Smart Chair (Leonardo's VR Flight Simulator)
To verbally control the Smart Chair and reduce distraction and downtime otherwise dedicated to command search.
To listen to the pilot during the voice execution of the flight checklist and make a comparison with the action performed. Useful for session monitoring and control activities.
Smart Feedback & Control for Smart Chair Simulator is a Betadynamiq's device born from a co-innovation project with Leonardo Spa.
A Proof Of Concept has already been developed to demonstrate the feasibility and, as shown in the demo video, consists of a box made by Rapid Prototyping FDM process that contains the processor, bluetooth antenna, charging and control system, and battery; No. 2 adjustable wristbands containing 4 vibrators for haptic feedback and connected to the box via cables; a Dashboard, installed in the terminal of the Smart Chair, for monitoring the connection to the device and activating the features.
