Spatial disorientation

A commonly used definition of spatial disorientation (SD) in aviation is "an erroneous sense of one’s position and motion relative to the plane of the earth’s surface". There exists a wide range of SD use-cases dictated by situational factors, therefore SD has been predominantly studied using reduced motion detection experimental contexts in isolation. The study of SD by use-case makes it difficult to understand general SD occurrence and thus provide viable solutions. To investigate SD in a generalized manner, a two-part Human Activity Recognition (HAR) study was performed.
