CARESS1 - Commercial Airliner Emergency Safety System

Marvin Oliver Schneider, João Luís Garcia Rosa

Abstract

This paper presents the project CARESS1, which is a connectionist system, using an MLP as network structure and GeneRec as learning algorithm, with the purpose to comprehend unforeseen situations in civil aviation and treat them in order to avoid air disasters. The importance of a new safety approach is discussed, related work is given and a system overview is presented. Shortly the first results (in a simulation environment) shall be obtained. The approach is a new and promising means to automatic problem treatment and might lead the way up to the final aim of a fully automatic aircraft.
