Supervision of Autonomous Vehicles: Mutual Modeling and Interaction Management

  title={Supervision of Autonomous Vehicles: Mutual Modeling and Interaction Management},
  author={Gilles Coppin and François Legras and Sylvie Saget},
As the capabilities of Unmanned Vehicle Systems increase, the tasks of their operators become more and more complex and diverse. Accordingly, the interfaces of these UVSs must become smarter in order to support these tasks and assist the operator. In this paper, we discuss how an Operator Support System can leverage dynamic interaction strategies to modulate the workload of the operator and how it could impact trust in automation.

Authority Management and Conflict Solving in Human-Machine Systems
This paper focuses on vehicle-embedded decision autonomy and the human operator’s role in so-called autonomous systems. Autonomy control and authority sharing are discussed, and the possible effects

Workload, Situation Awareness, and Teaming Issues for UAV/UCAV Operations
Recommendations to maximize operator efficacy, based on findings from human factors and ergonomics research, are presented as well as implications for training.
Collaborative Dialogue for Controlling Autonomous Systems
We claim that a natural dialogue interface to a semiautonomous intelligent agent has important advantages, especially when operating in real-time complex dynamic environments involving multiple
Trust, self-confidence, and operators' adaptation to automation
This paper examines the relationship between trust in automatic controllers, self-confidence in manual control abilities, and the use of automatic controllers in operating a simulated semi-automatic pasteurization plant and found trust, combined with self- confidence, predicted the operators' allocation strategy.

Communicating Vague Spatial Concepts in Human-GIS Interactions: A Collaborative Dialogue Approach
A collaborative dialogue approach is developed that enables the system and the user to construct shared knowledge about relevant contexts and to refine the system’s belief so that the intended meaning is properly grounded.
Goal-oriented Dialog as a Collaborative Subordinated Activity involving Collective Acceptance
A formalization of Collective Acceptance is shown, besides elements in order to integrate this attitude in a rational model of dialog are provided, and a model of referential acts as being part of a collaborative activity is presented.
Let's You Do That: Enquiries into the Cognitive Burdens of Dialogue
Most discussions of audience design assume that it rests on speakers’ uptake of information about listeners’ knowledge. The cognitive difficulty hypothesis (Horton and Gerrig, 2004 in press a)
Grounding is not Shared Understanding: Distinguishing Grounding at an Utterance and Knowledge Level
This paper argues that for the study and facilitation of collaborative learning, existing theories of grounding such as that of Clark and Shaefer [5] cannot be applied without adjustments. When
