Abstract

Human-machine teaming (HMT) is a promising paradigm to approach situations in which humans and autonomous systems must closely collaborate. This paper describes SAIL, a software framework for implementing HMT-concepts. The approach of SAIL is to integrate existing autonomous systems in a framework, that serves as a social layer between autonomous systems and human team members. The social layer contains reusable modules to provide social capabilities enabling teamwork. The players and modules in the framework communicate via a human-readable communication language that has been developed for HMT concepts. We demonstrate the SAIL framework for a proof of concept task where a human operator is teaming up with a swarm of drones.
