Abstract:

A literature review was conducted to examine existing and potential advanced interface technologies for supervisory control of multiple heterogeneous assets e.g., UAV swarming in a NEO environment. These technologies include behavioural-based interface design approaches, physiological-based interface design approaches, and multi-agent interface design and implementation methodologies. The emphasis was on adaptive interfaces and intelligent agent system technologies. An analysis was conducted to compare differences between requirements of a NEO complex environment and currently available technologies. A review on design principles and frameworks for synthetic complex systems was also performed. The results were summarized with pros and cons of different technologies for interface design purposes.
