Contrails (BETA)


Test your skills as an air traffic controller by directing planes to their runways! But more than that, every game you play helps researchers at the Hybrid Systems Lab at Stanford and Berkeley collect data for air traffic control research.

Contrails has been designed to collect information for scientific research as you play the game. This information is sent back to a server at UC Berkeley and used to reconstruct your game. Each game will be processed using machine learning algorithms to help learn models of controllers for air traffic control research. See the website for more details!

Recent changes:
New map added! Now you can play Alaska's Fairbanks International. Also fixed bugs relating to new user addition and uploading data to the servers.

Needs work Planes just appear in random spots instead of coming in from edge of screen as in other sims. Also planes frequently 'forget' where they've been told to go. Finally, it's too touchy to end your flight path in JUST the right spot at the end of the runway, forcing you to redraw approaches. Compared to Air Control and similar games, this one is lacking.

Frustrating and nothing else. Controls felt laggy, too many planes in much too small a space. Just frustrating. Immediate uninstall.

Challenging Very challenging game on a phone (Galaxy Note II); may be better on a tablet. You are trying to impose order on a chaotic situation. It is NOT like a real ATC scenario. Random freezes for about 10 min at end of a game. Remember that this is a Research Study Tool presented as a game - something very common in human factors studies.
