Pilots are being asked to participate in a study designed to make the symbols used to display ADS-B traffic information easier to understand.
Participants will be asked to try to interpret and learn the meanings of several symbols proposed for displaying traffic information in the cockpit. Study findings will be used by the FAA and avionics manufacturers to improve safety.
The study is being conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation Volpe Center and the MITRE Center for Advanced Aviation System Development. For more information or to participate, visit the study Web site.
