Summary

His presentation will be on human-automation interaction, with a focus on aviation, but also borrowing from his expertise with automotive applications. In his view, human-automation interaction currently relies heavily on the confusing binary switches between manual control and automation system. Many applications would benefit from a smoothly shifting control authority that keeps humans more involved in the task: haptic shared control, which continuously communicates the actions of the automatic system through forces on the control interface (stick, steering wheel).

In order to engineer such solutions, computational models of pilots are required, to describe their response to multi-sensory information. 

After a short introduction three main topics will be discussed:

  • Computational models that describe pilots interacting with a control interface to control a vehicle, in response to visual, vestibular and haptic information.
  • Computational models that describe and predict biodynamic feedthrough: specifically the undesirable effect of vehicle accelerations on limb motion.
  • Proof-of-concept studies that show the impact of providing haptic shared control to humans when controlling vehicles.
