A simulator study examined the potential benefits of presenting system failure information to pilots using several levels of alerting system knowledge and assertiveness. The results indicate that the subjects used the alerting system more as an attention-directing signal than as a diagnostic tool. The results also indicated that increasing usefulness of information to the subjects… CONTINUE READING
