Abstract

We exist within a society where we often take for granted our heavy reliance on instant information through the use of pervasive technology. However, we have too often seen that there are still occasions where events can suddenly descend into chaos and disorder, through natural events such as floods and earthquakes, or through calculated terrorist attacks. In such instances, we may turn to technology for assistance in achieving resilience and the ability to provide security.
This article examines the use of multiple unmanned systems in human-autonomy teaming for providing assistance to a single operator when dealing with an emergency scenario.
