  • 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 ...
  • Donmez, B.D.; Nehme, C.; Cummings, M.L. (IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part A Systems and Humans, 2010)
    Discrete event simulations for futuristic unmanned vehicle (UV) systems enable a cost and time effective methodology for evaluating various autonomy and human automation design parameters. Operator mental workload is an ...
  • Graham, Hudson; Cummings, M. L.; Donmez, Birsen; Brzezinski, A. S. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2008)
    In unmanned vehicle (UV) operations, displays are often the only information link between operators and vehicles. It is essential these displays present information clearly and efficiently so that operators can interact ...
  • Ho, Angela W. L.; Cummings, Mary L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2005)
    There is increasing interest in actively mitigating safety in vehicles beyond that of improving crash worthiness. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are more than 40,000 ...
  • Bertuccelli, L.F.; Cummings, M.L. (IEEE Transactions, 2012-09)
    Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) provide unprecedented access to imagery of possible ground targets of interest in real time. The availability of this imagery is expected to increase with envisaged future missions of one ...
