  • Cummings, M.L.; Mastracchio, C.; Thornburg, K.M.; Mkrtchyan, A. (Interacting with Computers, 2013)
    Operators currently controlling Unmanned Aerial Vehicles report significant boredom, and such systems will likely become more automated in the future. Similar problems are found in process control, commercial aviation, and ...
  • Scott, S. D.; Cummings, M. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2006)
    The following Tables and Figures detail the cognitive task analysis (CTA) performed to determine the information requirements needed to support a single operator located aboard the futuristic Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). ...
  • Pitman, D.; Cummings, M.L. (Advances in Human-Computer Interaction, 2012)
    In order to collaboratively explore an environment with a Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV), an operator needs a mobile interface, which can support the operator’s divided attention. To this end, we developed the Micro Aerial ...
  • Smith, Cristin; Essama, Stephane; Duppen, Mark; Marquez, Jessica; Cummings, Mary; Wang, Enlie (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2005)
    In support of the vision for humans to establish a large scale, economically viable, permanent human settlement on the Moon within the next 25 years (Space Frontier Foundation, 2005), the next generation lunar landing ...
  • Brzezinski, A. S.; Cummings, M. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2006)
    As UAVs become increasingly autonomous, the multiple personnel currently required to operate a single UAV may eventually be superseded by a single operator concurrently managing multiple UAVs. Instead of lower-level tasks ...
  • Scott, S. D.; Cummings, M. L.; Almirao, F. M.; da Silva, F. B. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2007)
    Effective team collaboration and timely decision-making significantly influence the outcome of time-sensitive military operations. The increasing complexity introduced by the recent move towards network centric operations ...
  • Cummings, M. L.; da Silva, F. B.; Scott, S. D. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2007)
    Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems, despite having no onboard human pilots, currently require extensive human involvement to accomplish successful mission operations. Further, successful operations also require ...
  • Scott, S. D.; Cummings, M. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2007)
    This report describes the conceptual design and detailed architecture of an experimental platform developed to support investigations of novel decision and collaboration technologies for complex, time-critical mission ...
  • Cummings, M.L.; Jackson, K.; Quimby, P.; Pitman, D. (International Journal of Micro Air Vehicles, 2012)
    With recent regulatory efforts to reduce restrictions placed on the operation of Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) in the United States, it is likely that in the next few years, these vehicles will become commonplace in the ...
  • Cunio, Phillip M.; Cummings, M. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2009)
    This technical report describes the concept and development of SITHE, the Systems Integration Tool for HSI Evaluation. SITHE is a framework for selecting tools to be used in evaluating complex technical systems in terms ...
  • Cummings, M.l; Brezezinski, A. (International Journal of Applied Decision Science, 2010)
    As unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) become increasingly autonomous, time-critical and complex single-operator systems will require advance prediction and mitigation of schedule conflicts. However, actions that mitigate a ...
  • Cummings, M.L.; Bruni, S. (International Journal of Intelligent Decision Technologies, 2010)
    In resource allocation problems for systems with moving planning horizons and significant uncertainty, typical of supervisory control environments, it is critical that some balance of human-automation collaboration be ...
  • Cummings, M.L.; Marquez, J.J.; Roy, N. (International Journal of Human Computer Studies, 2011)
    Path planning is a problem encountered in multiple domains, including unmanned vehicle control, air traffic control, and future exploration missions to the Moon and Mars. Due to the voluminous and complex nature of the ...
  • Cummings, M. L.; Mitchell, P. J.; Sheridan, T. B. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2004)
    Network centric warfare (NCW) is a concept of operations that seeks to increase combat power by linking battlespace entities to effectively leverage information superiority. A network centric force must be supported by ...
  • Cummings, M.L.; How, J.; Whitten, A.; Toupet, O. (Proceedings of the IEEE, 2012)
    For future systems that require one or a small team of operators to supervise a network of automated agents, automated planners are critical since they are faster than humans for path planning and resource allocation in ...
  • Cummings, M. L.; Massie, A. E.; Nehme, C. E. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2007)
    This document contains display requirements for Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) control station displays to be used by unmanned vehicle units in support of heterogeneous unmanned vehicle missions (such as Special Operations ...
  • Ho, Angela Wei Ling (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2006)
    Intelligent driver warning systems can be found in many high-end vehicles on the road today, which will likely rapidly increase as they become standard equipment. However, introducing multiple warning systems into vehicles ...
  • Cummings, M. L.; Wang, Enlie; Ho, Angela W. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2006)
    This study addresses this gap in CAS and intelligent alarm research by examining whether or not a single master alarm warning versus multiple warnings for the different collision warning systems conveys adequate information ...
  • Mitchell, P. J.; Cummings, M. L.; Sheridan, T. B. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2005)
    The application of network centric operations principles to human supervisory control (HSC) domains means that humans are increasingly being asked to manage multiple simultaneous HSC processes. However, increases in the ...
