The Cognitive Costs and Benefits of Automation Dr

  title={The Cognitive Costs and Benefits of Automation Dr},
  author={Drdc Valcartier and R. Breton},
In complex environments like Command and Control (C) where human errors may have tragic consequences, intelligent automated systems are essential to execute complex tasks such as situation assessment and decision-making. However, because C environments are also dynamic, it can be difficult for the machine to adapt to the changing and unstable conditions of the environments. Human capacity of adaptation is then required. Because the human cannot be completely replaced or removed from the… Expand

Team Play with a Powerful and Independent Agent: Operational Experiences and Automation Surprises on the Airbus A-320
To find out whether similar difficulties with maintaining mode awareness are encountered on more advanced aircraft, a corpus of automation surprises was gathered from pilots of the Airbus A-320, an aircraft characterized by high levels of autonomy, authority, and complexity. Expand
Management by Consent in Human-Machine Systems: When and Why It Breaks Down
Performance and verbal protocol data indicate that the observed difficulties can be explained by a combination of poor system feedback and pilots' difficulties with generating expectations of future system behavior. Expand
