AVT 4220 Human Autonomy Teaming in Aviation

The field of human-autonomy teaming (HAT) is fast becoming a significant area of research, especially in aviation. The basic objective is to create natural and effective interactions between people and machines. HAT is highly interdisciplinary, bringing together methodologies and techniques from robotics, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, neuroergonomics, education, and other fields. The topics covered will include technologies that enable human-machine interactions, the psychology of interaction between people and machines, how to design and conduct HAT studies, and real-world applications such as assistive machines.
