Our Research Focus
The Cabin Safety Research Team takes an active role in investigating the efficacy of various methods of transferring safety information to the flying public. This includes, but is not limited to, research involving passenger safety briefings, seat-back safety information cards, graphical safety signs, pictographic information placards, passenger information comprehension, and passenger information retention.
Serious Games are a topic of research which is looking at the efficacy of interactive, edutainment applications for the transmission and retention of safety information. Since 2013, the Cabin Safety Research Team has been in active collaboration, via grants and correspondence, with the Human Computer Interaction Lab at the University of Udine, Italy (http://hcilab.uniud.it/). This collaboration has led to the development and successful deployment of multiple, freely available applications for aviation passenger safety. These applications are all available at no cost on Facebook and mobile app stores:
