Smart Eye and Hinfact will be exhibiting at I/ITSEC to demonstrate how Smart Eye’s eye tracking technology combined with Hinfact’s human factors expertise will add value to pilot training.
By showcasing how Smart Eye’s AI-powered eye tracking technology can be integrated in a flight simulator, Smart Eye and Hinfact will prove why eye tracking is an essential part in effective pilot training. Instructors are faced with a difficult task when assessing pilot performance during pilot training.
Since the instructors are normally placed behind the pilot, they have no way of knowing where the pilot is directing their gaze while monitoring the flight instruments.

On average, pilots spend 90% of their time monitoring flight parameters and the state of the aircraft. But in critical situations, pilots might not always realize that they are losing vital scanning behaviours, leading to critical simulation parameters being missed. This makes it crucial to use an eye tracking system that provides the technology necessary to track eye movements with the highest possible precision.
With a tool tracking the pilot’s gaze, the instructor is able to follow the pilot’s attentional focus and optimize monitoring behaviour in critical training situations. This would add value and efficiency to the training process and result in better prepared pilots, which in turn could help pilots avoid incidents caused by insufficient monitoring.
We are very happy to showcase the integration of our eye tracking technology with the GazeCraft tool from Hinfact at I/ITSEC 2019. This integration adds tremendous value to pilot training experience by helping instructors in understanding pilots gaze behavior and how pilots are operating and monitoring the systems in a cockpit.
