Dr. Jibo He Uses Technology to Improve Pilot Performance

Wichita State psychology professor Jibo He, along with three graduate and two undergraduate students, are collaborating with a team from the University of Oklahoma to conduct research and development on head-mounted display and wearable devices used in simulator-based pilot training. The FAA is funding the research with a nearly $290,000 grant.
