A hands-off experience in flying airplanes | Tim Fricke | TEDxVienna
Studies have shown that computers and machines can be controlled by brain signals only, without any physical interaction. If we apply this technology to aircraft control, could flying one day become as easy as riding a bike? While we are on our way to find that out, joint research by aerospace and neuroscience experts can boost the development of brain controlled devices for everyday use. Tim Fricke, aerospace engineer and private pilot, has always pursued the dream of flight. After graduating with high distinction from Technische Univerisät München (TUM) and from the Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (SUPAERO), he now works as research assistant and Ph.D. student at TUM’s Institute of Flight System Dynamics on handling qualities requirements for brain controlled aircraft flight.
