A pedagogical design and architecture for intelligent tutoring and aiding in supervisory control of complex systems
We propose the tutor/aid paradigm which integrates issues in intelligent technical training and real-time aiding of operators in complex dynamic systems. We focus on the pedagogical module of a tutor that not only compensates for a novice operator's deficiencies in knowledge and skills, but also prepares the operator to use the tutor as an assistant after training. As a first step to illustrate the tutor/aid paradigm, we present GT-VITA (Georgia Tech Visual Inspectable Tutor and Assistant), a proof-of concept ITS that has been successfully developed and evaluated, and is being fielded in the domain of satellite ground control.
