COMFort in the cabin DEMOnstrator

The COMFort in the cabin DEMOnstrator is part of the EU project. The project aims at understanding and optimizing the comfort perception of aircraft passengers in short-range flights. In the project we aim at building the digital twin regarding the comfort experience of passengers in the cabin demonstrator.

For this, we will conduct a study during a real-flight to collect data on the comfort of passengers. 50 participants will be invited to take an air travel for 70 minutes and data will be collected regarding the basic anthropometry and their experience on comfort. For some volunteers (max: 20),  the heart-rate and the physical movements during the flight will be collected as well.
