Designing Effective Human-Automation-Plant Interfaces: A Control-Theoretic Perspective

  title={Designing Effective Human-Automation-Plant Interfaces: A Control-Theoretic Perspective},
  author={Greg A. Jamieson and Kim J. Vicente},
  journal={Human factors},
  volume={47 1},
In this article, we propose the application of a control-theoretic framework to human-automation interaction. The framework consists of a set of conceptual distinctions that should be respected in automation research and design. We demonstrate how existing automation interface designs in some nuclear plants fail to recognize these distinctions. We further show the value of the approach by applying it to modes of automation. The design guidelines that have been proposed in the automation… CONTINUE READING
