    In recent years there has been a significant trend across various domains shifting from local to remote control. Remote control can have some relevant advantages, such as increased efficiency, safer working environments for operators, quickly switching between controlled objects, and reducing the logistical impact of autonomous operating systems. However, it significantly changes the operator role and introduces new human-machine interactions. Different ways of information presentations and a lack of auditive and tactile cues changes the way that people acquire situation awareness and can induce symptoms of motion sickness. Professor Szonya Durant will provide an overview of issues faced by remote operators called on to assist autonomous vehicles. She will discuss how to measure aspects of situation awareness and how interface displays can help improve situation awareness. Dr. Kay Stanney will provide a review of motion sickness theories and protocols they have developed to minimize adverse effects. Dr. Alan Hobbs will show how these human factors issues are addressed in the aim to operate Remotely Piloted Aircrafts routinely and safely in civilian airspace.

    The study presented today is part of a validation effort to determine the extent to which AI-driven simulation-based instruction can alleviate pilot training pipeline pain points experienced by many militaries around the world. The main objective was to verify the training benefits of synthetic coaching, feedback, and biometrics using an immersive training device. Results are presented in terms of both technology acceptance and training effects over time to achieve the desired proficiency level across basic pilot maneuvers.

    Recorded on Thursday, October 26th, 2023 at the HFES 67th International Annual Meeting

    This expert panel is the second of a two-panel series marking the 40th anniversary of “Cognitive Systems Engineering: New Wine in New Bottles” by Hollnagel and Woods (1983) and, arguably, the beginning of Cognitive Systems Engineering (CSE). These experts were there at (or near) the beginning. They wrestled with the daunting issues of how to apply new CSE findings, many of which they discovered, into workable solutions that actually improved systems performance in high-uncertainty, high-stakes settings. Their work has been implemented in a number of fields, including aviation, healthcare, power generation, and defense. They will each answer the question, “What ideas and perspectives are important about Cognitive Systems Engineering, and why?”

    This expert panel is the first of a two-panel series marking the 40th anniversary of “Cognitive Systems Engineering: New Wine in New Bottles” by Hollnagel and Woods (1983) and, arguably, the beginning of Cognitive Systems Engineering (CSE). These experts were there at (or near) the beginning, devising new methods, expanding and creating new theories, and revealing a new perspective on how complex systems sustain performance and fail. They also wrestled and struggled with these new ideas to propose and implement solutions to improve performance in a number of high-consequence industries. Whether in graduate school or as early-career professionals, they saw the surprises that served as signals that the thinking that brought us to that point would not, alone, be the thinking and doing that would take us further. They will each answer the question, “What ideas and perspectives are important about Cognitive Systems Engineering, and why?”

    Dr. Claire Gordon joined the US Army civilian workforce in 1983 as a research anthropologist and retired 30 years later as the US Army Senior Research Scientist in Biological Anthropology. During her illustrious career, Dr. Gordon designed and led the execution of the 1988 and 2012 US Army anthropometric surveys and innovated sampling and analytical methodologies which are now the gold standard for anthropometric surveys. Her work on uniforms, body armor systems, vehicle design, and workstations focused on the physical accommodation of all Soldiers. This Discussion Panel gathers experts who worked directly with Dr. Gordon or were directly influenced by her work. They will discuss Dr. Gordon’s impact on the field of anthropometry, her legacy championing minority accommodation, and the lessons she taught as a mentor to the next generation of anthropologists. The facilitated discussion will include an open dialogue and audience participation.
