An Assessment Method of Pilot Situation Awareness in Manned/Unmanned-Aerial-Vehicles Team
In manned/unmanned-aerial-vehicles team, the situation awareness level of manned-aerial-vehicle (MAV) pilot affects the pilot’s cognitive state. Evaluating the pilot’s situation awareness level will enhance the cognitive and interactive capabilities of unmanned-aerial-vehicle (UAV) and MAV. This paper proposes an assessment method of pilot’s situation awareness, which is based on attention resource allocation theory and conditional probability cognitive process. Using the presented method, the situation awareness level of pilot could be quantified and evaluated reasonably. Finally the paper simulated the model at different levels of autonomy (LOA) to demonstrate the rationality of the model.
