Speaker Pitch - B612: the new font for future cockpits?
Laurent Spaggiari tells us the story behind his ignite talk "B612 Polarsys font".
Various studies have been conducted to assess the quality of displays on Airbus equipment including the A380, A400M and A350. The general conclusion was that the displays could be improved in terms of readability (detecting and/or reducing risk of error) and of reading comfort. In addition, if you included the screen used to display pilot/maintenance documentation, the cockpit was not homogenous due to the multiple fonts used.
