A Novel Fatigue Monitoring Evaluation System for Air Traffic Controllers
Abstract— According to the domestic and foreign security agencies, at least 70% ATC’ man-made incidents are directly or indirectly caused by fatigue, therefore ATC’ fatigue has become a hot issue in the field of civil aviation safety management at home and abroad. In this paper, it firstly introduces the general situation of fatigue for ATCs and its related causes. Then, based on investigations and collected expert opinions, the evaluation system of fatigue monitoring for ATC is established. The weights of monitoring indicators are calculated by using the judgment matrix obtained by expert scoring method. Finally, a case study shows the feasibility and validity of the evaluation system.
Index Terms— air traffic controller, fatigue, analytic hierarchy process (AHP), fuzzy math.
