About these proceedings

Introduction

This book focuses on the importance of human factors in the development of reliable and safe unmanned systems. It discusses current challenges such as how to improve perceptual and cognitive abilities of robots, develop suitable synthetic vision systems, cope with degraded reliability of unmanned systems, predict robotic behavior in case of a loss of communication, the vision for future soldier-robot teams, human-agent teaming, real-world implications for human-robot interaction, and approaches to standardize both display and control of technologies across unmanned systems. Based on the AHFE 2016 International Conference on Human Factors in Robots and Unmanned Systems, held on July 27-31, 2016, in Walt Disney World®, Florida, USA, this book is expected to foster new discussion and stimulate new ideas towards the development of more reliable, safer, and functional devices for carrying out automated and concurrent tasks.
