“More than 50 percent of the cortex, the surface of the brain, is devoted to processing visual information,” writes David Williams, Professor of Medical Optics at The University of Rochester1. Recognizing this incredible information, we offer a headset that incorporates Tobii’s leading-edge eye tracking software into pilot training to accelerate learning. For the first time in history, airline flight departments know exactly where students are looking – at every microsecond.
Full motion trainers don’t even have the capability to track eye motion. But why is eye tracking important? Because tracking eyes saves fractions of seconds. And fractions of seconds over millions of flows saves hours of time. These microscopic efficiencies lead to thousands of dollars saved.
Because our virtual flight decks are built with dimensional accuracy, when a flight student uses a VTR headset, they’re basically in the flight deck. By streamlining eye flow tasks (verifying flaps, checking gauges, etc.) without physical contact, the student processes and learns this information that much faster. And practicing faster and faster translates into a faster experience in the actual flight deck.
For the first time, we’ve built a training device around the human body, not a human body around a training device. Use VTR headsets and leverage the awesomeness of the human body. During every minute of training.
