Recording "FS Airbus" parameters


 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm doing some research on human factors in aviation and in my lab' we are particulary interested in modelling conflict that may occur between aircrewsand their autopilot. Therefore I use FS2004 and Airbus add-on (A300/A340) to conduct my research. I have also downloaded Flight Data Recorder which is interfaced with FS2004 so as to analyse flight parameters and to detect such man/machine conflict.. But among all the variables I can get, I don't find any that represent state of the autopilot of

an Airbus(like state of the autothrust, value of the selected vertical

speed, state of autopilote 1 or 2, etc...). I know that Airbus 340 add on is not developped by Microsoft but is there a way to get these parameters?

If those parts of the airbus implementation are implemented in the proprietary code for the add-on aircraft you are using, the only folks who may be able to help are those who designed and implemented it. No one else is likely to be hacking into individual aircaft code to extract such data.

FSUIPC, which is probably the interface your recorder is using, was built by hacking into FS's own code but there's no way I can do this for every possible add-on aircraft. It is up to the individual implementers to help there.

Your only other alternative is to find a less sophisticated Airbus implementation which does use the FS facilities for autopilot etc.

Regards,

Pete
