Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

My name is Claus Christmann, I currently am a student in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Research Facility (UAVRF) at the Georgia Institute of Technology. You can find my private site at http://controls.ae.gatech.edu/claus.

I got started with FlightGear as a work project: Find/Implement/Code a flight simulator of a commercial transport aircraft that has a non-steam-gauge cockpit and a full autopilot and expand the functionality of those two units by introducing an Emergency Path Generator (EPG).

The EPG would automatically compute (optimal) trajectories to reachable landing sites, based on the current (potentially non-nominal) dynamics of the aircraft. The implementation of the EPG should be done s.t. human-in-the-loop test could be conducted to evaluate and improve the user interface of the EPG (and its interconnection with other cockpit units, e.g. EHSI, PFD, ...)
