Abstract
The primary objective of the proposed research is to develop, and to demonstrate the feasibility of a mathematically rigorous approach for modeling and evaluating human supervisory control of multiple unmanned and/or autonomous vehicles. This high-level objective is decomposed into three inter-related goals: (1) the development of a mathematical model of human supervisory control, for individual operators as well as for cooperative teams of operators, (2) the study of team performance metrics induced by comparing the team"s operation and the overall system operation against baseline operations, with all of these operations represented quantitatively using the aforesaid models, and (3) the identification of diagnostic information from these induced metrics and the identification of feedback information from these metrics for improving the performance of the team of operators. A secondary objective of the proposed work is to develop a framework that enables clear and precise definitions of the concepts of futuristic operations, such that this definition directly influences various elements within the models and, by consequence, the induced metrics of supervisory control.
