Head-up display (HUD), a primary cockpit display, helps in optimizing a pilot's attention towards aircraft and outside events. Slight mismatch in the balance may cause missed events; this phenomenon is called attention tunneling and affects the situational awareness of the pilot. This work reports an intuitive approach to detect attention tunneling while use of HUD in aircrafts. Texture analysis of a composite HUD camera video provided three distinguishing parameters, viz., contrast, correlation, and homogeneity. These three texture parameters are used as inputs for a fuzzy inference-based assistive detection system which could be used for distinguishing tunneled and nontunneled HUD operation. © 2015 Chinese Optics Letters.

Heat transfer, thermal management, and acoustics are the important parameters that determine the effectiveness of any miniaturized electronic circuit. As the density of electronic components is increasing, the reliability of such systems is of great concern. The proposed work discusses a novel technique of a magnetic pumping fluid system without conventional cooling components. Here the integrated effect of the conjugate heat transfer and magnetic field is taken into account to study flow phenomena. Two different fluids-water and kerosene-as a base fluid for ferrofluid are evaluated for physical quantities such as pressure, temperature, and heat transfer coefficient to measure the performance of a magnetic cooling system. Flow in the cooling setup is optimized by using numerical analysis and number of experiments on the given setup. It was found that flow depends on the magnetic field gradient, temperature gradient, fluid properties, and material combination. In addition, flow characteristics depend on the influence of magnetic field and temperature of the fluid. Analysis results show that the heat transfer and pressure head in the kerosene-based ferrofluid are more stable compared to the water-based ferrofluid. A better magnetic fluid with both high magnetization and a high pyromagnetic coefficient can enhance the flowability of the ferrofluid to a large extent. Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
