In this paper a simulation model for visual attention is discussed and formally analysed. The model is part of the design of an agent-based system that supports a naval officer in its task to compile a tactical picture of the situation in the field. A case study is described in which the model is used to simulate a human subject’s attention. The formal(More)
In this paper a cognitive model for visual attention is introduced. The cognitive model is part of the design of a software agent that supports a naval warfare officer in its task to compile a tactical picture of the situation in the field. An executable formal specification of the cognitive model is given and a case study is described in which the model is(More)
In the domain of naval warfare, it is crucial for the crew of the vessels involved to be aware of the situation in the field. Examples of important questions that should be addressed continuously are “in which direction are we heading?”, “are we currently under attack?”, “are there any friendly vessels around?”, and so on. To assess such issues, one of the(More)
This paper discusses and evaluates an agent model that is able to manipulate the visual attention of a human, in order to support naval crew. The agent model consists of four submodels, including a model to reason about a subject’s attention. The model was evaluated based on a practical case study which was formally analysed and verified using(More)
The project CIM, started in 2003, addresses the problem of automated support for incident management. In this paper some intermediate results are shown, especially on automated support of analysis of errors in traces of incident management. For such traces it can be checked automatically which dynamic properties hold or fail. The potential of the approach(More)
In this chapter, we propose to outline the scientific area that addresses Ambient Intelligence applications in which not only sensor data, but also knowledge from the human-directed sciences such as biomedical science, neuroscience, and psychological and social sciences is incorporated. This knowledge enables the environment to perform more in-depth,(More)
An important issue in research on human-machine cooperation concerns how tasks should be dynamically allocated within a human-machine team in order to improve team performance. The ability to support humans in task allocation decision making requires a thorough understanding of its underlying cognitive processes, and that of relative trust more(More)
Increasing machine intelligence leads to a shift from a mere interactive to a much more complex cooperative human-machine relation requiring a multidisciplinary development approach. This paper presents a generic multidisciplinary cognitive engineering method CE+ for the integration of human factors and artificial intelligence in the development of(More)
Several challenges can be identified for work on future naval platforms. Information volumes for navigation, system monitoring, and tactical tasks will increase as the complexity of the internal and external environment also increases. The trend of reduced manning is expected to continue as a result of economic pressures and humans will be responsible for(More)
