Abstract

One of the main aims of the Horizon 2020 CASTLE (Cabin System Design Towards Passenger Wellbeing) project is to deliver innovative cabin interiors solutions that maximize the comfort and wellbeing of passengers in the next future. In order to achieve such an ambitious objective, an effective HCD (Human Centred Design) approach has been put in place to derive a Human Response Model based on a holistic assessment of comfort. Therefore, the overall CASTLE HCD methodology has been conceived to provide different tools and methods to collect data on the impact that the design of each cabin item has on the user from the earliest design stages. One of these tools is represented by the use of 3D mock-ups in Virtual/Augmented Reality environments to capture data on the user’s perception and to rate the level of appraisal inspired by the specific design solution. In this paper we present the experimental procedures for the Human in the loop simulations in Virtual Reality Environment of the Regional Aircraft solutions provided in the CASTLE Project. First, we introduce the overall procedure plan. Then, we describe the work done for the creation of the Virtual Environment for different scenarios (user standing in the cabin, Galley, Lavatory) and for the subjective evaluation of these cabin items.
