  • Wan, J.; Scott, S. D.; Cummings, M. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2007)
    Frequent interruptions are commonplace in modern work environments. The negative impacts of interruptions are well documented and include increased task completion and error rates in individual task activities, as ...
  • Nehme, C. E.; Cummings, M. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2006)
    Purpose of this literature review: To survey scholarly articles, books and other sources (dissertations, conference proceedings) relevant to the use of the audio supervisory control of unmanned vehicles.
  • 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). ...
  • 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become increasingly autonomous, the multiple personnel currently required to operate a single UAV may eventually be superseded by a single operator concurrently managing multiple UAVs.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 ...
  • 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.; 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.; 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Crandall, J. W.; Cummings, M. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2008)
    Advances in automation are making it possible for a single operator to control multiple unmanned vehicles (UVs). This capability is desirable in order to reduce the operational costs of human-UV systems (HUVS), extend ...
  • Cummings, M. L.; Pina, P. E.; Donmez, B. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2008)
    The goal of this research is to develop a methodology to select supervisory control metrics. This methodology is based on cost-benefit analyses and generic metric classes. In the context of this research, a metric class ...
  • Visser, Mark; Cummings, M. L.; Marquez, Jessica J. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2007)
    Currently, Shadow UAV operations require two people: the Air Vehicle Operator (AVO) and the Mission Payload Operator (MPO). A previous workload study demonstrated that it is possible to combine these two positions such ...
  • Crandall, J. W.; Nehme, C. E.; Cummings, M. L. (MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory, 2006)
    In the following sections, each of the primary missions are decomposed into mission planning, management, and replanning segments in order to identify what the primary functions a human operator will need to perform. The ...
