Abstract:

This project is part of a larger effort that focuses on human-automation coordination in the context of the development, integration, and validation of a computational cognitive model that acts as a full-fledged synthetic teammate on an otherwise all-human team. The team performs a small command-and-control task i.e., team control of an Unmanned Aerial System UAS. The research integrated the synthetic teammate model into the CERTT II Cognitive Engineering Research on Team Tasks II testbed in order to empirically address these research questions 1 What is the nature of coordination and collaboration within human or mixed human-synthetic teams in command and control C2 settings 2 How well does the synthetic teammate function as part of a human-synthetic agent team and 3 What do deficiencies in synthetic teammate interactions with human teammates reveal about human-automation coordination needs
