WAPA: A wearable framework for aerobatic pilot aid

Disorientation induced by G-forces during aerobatic flight generates difficulties for the pilots to perfectly align their aerobatic maneuver. This paper presents a modular wearable system for enhancing training of aerobatic pilots. A combination of accelerometers and a gyroscope is used to detect possible deviations compared to the optimum trajectory. The wearable system informs the user in real time about the corrections to apply via vibrotactile actuators and speech synthesis. This publication presents a work in progress in order to validate the system in simulation.
