An innovative wearable cockpit in design by BAE could lighten the load on both fighter planes and their pilots.
The wearable cockpit concept would rely on modern technology, such as gesture and eye-tracking technology, that would eliminate many of the physical components typically manipulated by the pilot. In their place, the pilot would wear a VR-enabled helmet that would project the readouts and controls in an efficient and reconfigurable way.
According to the team, however, the standout feature of the system is its ability to infer the pilot’s goal based on where they are looking, using AI to help anticipate the necessary tools.
