Common jet lag will keep future after long-haul flights in borders. Airbus engineers want to use lighting technology to ensure that the passengers sleep better and can easily adjust to the time at the destination.
She does not, the sunrises and sunsets, which presents Airbus passengers on long-haul flights are romantic. But they are helpful. Because it should mitigate the physical ailments, is commonly called jet lag.
And how does Airbus do it? While the pilot time-zone tour whose been biking, LEDs take on the task, to suggest a ‘normal’ daily routine your body and to prepare for the time at the destination. This includes the simulation of natural sunrises and sunsets in the cabins.
16.7 million shades create the light of any time of day
The airlines can choose from Airbus in the future between 16.7 million different colors and with them create certain atmospheres such as morning and evening light. “We provide the customers with a baseline that can be expanded”, says the responsible for marketing Senior Vice President, François Caudron.
The lighting concept is the theory that a sunset signals the body that the natural day to end, and then he pours out substances, which make tired. That the passenger is on the go at the right time to sleep, the cabin pressure is reduced in the newly acquired Airbus cabin concept then also at bedtime. Along comes a higher humidity and air filtration.
New lighting concept is used in the A350 and A330neo
The new Airbus cabin concept to help passengers in the A350 and the 2017 on the market A330neo the time difference after long-haul flights better to cope with. Disturbed sleep-wake rhythm, headaches and dizziness, this jet lag symptoms should be mitigated by the used LED light.
Airbus also thinking to waive next to the modern LED lighting in the construction of new pilot perhaps genuine Windows. Instead, Airbus wants to offer virtual-reality vistas. They are then produced on huge display on the cabin walls.
Acceptance among travelers queries Airbus already for five years. In children, it is high, the company knows. In adults, the opinions differ obviously. Which is why it is also conceivable to leave out only a part of the real window.
Windowless in the future
Airbus with this idea is by no means alone: so an autonomous car without window was presented recently with the concept of Shiwa in Turin.
