Abstract:

Security and inspection systems are becoming increasingly automated. Many such systems include mobile platforms capable of autonomous sensing and analysis of the environment from a multitude of perspectives. This increased automation shifts the responsibilities of humans from active patrolling and inspection to passive monitoring of remote sensor information. The operator brings perceptual and cognitive characteristics to this task which need to be addressed in both system architecture and interface design if desired performance reliability is to be achieved. A study is reported which examines the impact of these characteristics on system performance.
