A Predictive Model for Human-Unmanned Vehicle Systems : Final Report
(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 ...
Identifying Predictive Metrics for Supervisory Control of Multiple Robots
(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 ...
The Impact of Heterogeneity on Operator Performance in Future Unmanned Vehicle Systems
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, ...
A UAV Mission Hierarchy
(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 ...
