Vigilance and threat detection are critical human factors considerations in the control of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Utilizing a vigilance task in which threat detections (critical signals) led observers to perform a subsequent manual target acquisition task, this study provides information that might have important implications for both of these considerations in the design of future UAV systems. A sensory display format resulted in more threat detections, fewer false alarms, and faster… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • During each practice session, all observers reached a predetermined criterion of 90% correct detections on the warning (vigilance) task, with false alarms rates not to exceed 5%.
