Abstract : Uninhabited Military Vehicles (UMVs) are used to augment manned forces in dull, dirty, or dangerous tasks. Human factors issues range from control station design, to vehicle interoperability, and integration with manned systems. New principles are reviewed for supporting the operator, and for collaboration between multiple operators. Future study is needed on techniques for distributive collaboration, command and control of UMV teams, and enabling flexible human supervisory control of multiple, highly-automated UMV assets.
