Abstraction and intent: Human factors for controlling multiple UAS

Dale Richards

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This session will outline key areas of Human Factors issues surrounding single operator control of multiple UAS. We will focus on the cognitive limitations of the operator and the context with which the operating scenario lends itself (e.g. the nature of attention and ability to monitor multiple assets within a complex mission). There will be discussion on the need for identifying the type of information sought by the operator and the need to focus on autonomy in order to set goals to the swarm, in order to complete tasks that bring you closer to the (shared) goal. Finally we will examine the human-autonomy partnership paradigm within this context.
