  • 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 ...
  • Crandall, J. W.; Cummings, M. L. (IEEE Transactions on Robotics, 2007)
    In recent years, much research has focused on making possible single operator control of multiple robots. In these high workload situations, many questions arise including how many robots should be in the team, which ...
  • Nehme, C. E.; Meckeci, B.; Crandall, J. W.; Cummings, M.L. (2008)
    Recent studies have shown that with appropriate operator decision support and with sufficient automation, inverting the multiple operators to single-unmanned vehicle control paradigm is possible. These studies, however, ...
  • 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.; Brzezinski, A. S.; Lee, J. D. (IEEE Intelligent Systems, 2007)
    There is increasing interest in designing systems such that the current many-to-one ratio of operators to unmanned vehicles (UVs) can be inverted. Instead of lower-level tasks performed by today’s UV teams, the sole operator ...
  • Cummings, M.L.; Tsonis, C.; Rader, A. (Air Traffic Control Quarterly, 2008)
    As a consequence of the push to increase National Airspace System capacity, air traffic control displays will not only have to show the increasing number of aircraft, but also all the associated data such as airspeed and ...
  • 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 ...
  • Macbeth, J. C.; Cummings, M. L.; Bertuccelli, L. F.; Surana, A. (HFES, 2012-10)
    While there is currently significant interest in developing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) that can be supervised by a single operator, the majority of these systems focus on Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) ...
  • Berardi, C.; Solovey, E. T.; Cummings, M. L. (Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI), 2013-06)
    There is an increasing requirement for advanced analytical methodologies to help military intelligence analysts cope with the growing amount of data they are saturated with on a daily basis. Specifically, within the context ...
  • 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 ...
  • Clare, A. S.; Macbeth, J. C,; Cummings, M. L. (American Control Conference, 2012)
    Advances in autonomy have made it possible to invert the typical operator-to-unmanned vehicle ratio so that a single operator can now control multiple heterogeneous Unmanned Vehicles (UVs). Real-time scheduling and task ...
  • Stimpson, A. J.; Buinhas, L. S.; Bezek, S.; Boussemart, Y.; Cummings, M. L. (HFES, 2012-10)
    Procedures play an important role in domains where humans interact with critical, complex systems. In such environments, the operator’s ability to correctly follow a given set of procedures can directly impact system safety. ...
  • Gao, F. (2013-06)
    Teamwork is important when humans work together with automated agents to perform tasks requiring monitoring, coordination, and complex decision making. While human-agent teams can bring many benefits such as higher ...
  • Gao, F.; Clare, A. S.; Macbeth, J. C.; Cummings, M. L. (AAAI, 2013-03)
    We developed a system dynamics model to simulate the impact of operator trust on performance in multiple robot control. Analysis of a simulated urban search and rescue experiment showed that operators decided to manually ...
  • 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 ...
