ARL-HRED is currently conducting research on human-robot interaction (HRI) and advanced displays for human-vehicle interaction (HVI) at the US Army RDECOM Simulation & Training Technology Center (STTC). Orlando, FL. HRI and HVI are both complex work environments where the human operator engages in multiple simultaneous goal-oriented tasks (e.g., communication, navigation, reconnaissance, security, and control of other systems while on the move). Other HRI research involves experiments on live and simulated robot teleoperation; specific research areas include display technologies (e.g., multi-modal displays and stereoscopic displays) and automation techniques (e.g., adaptive automation) to enhance the robotics operator’s performance in multi-tasking environments. Our research on advanced displays for HVI focuses on augmented/overlaid information on vehicle vision block for indirect-vision driving and embedded training. State-of-the-art simulators and equipments are used in both research areas.
