The event at a glance

The ACROSS Public Forum and Exhibition was held on the 9th of February, 2016 in Rome, Italy at the Casa dell’Aviatore.

It aimed at giving visitors a unique opportunity to see the state-of-the-art of the ongoing research on new cockpit applications and human-machine interfaces through prototypes, videos and posters.
Free visits and guided tours provided the chance to explore the different parts of the exhibition and see first-hand the solutions and innovations for the cockpit of the future, developed by ACROSS to maintain flight safety.
