GEORGIA TECH RESEARCH INSTITUTE:
UNMANNED AIRCRAFT PILOT SELECTION
Problem: Unmanned aircraft need a different selection procedure for pilots since they have very different tasks and workloads.
Process: This is a project I just joined this semester. There are currently seven simulations that are designed to be similar to what an actual day of being a pilot of one or more unmanned aircraft would look like. This includes receiving new instructions and missions, and alerts when something has gone wrong. I am now running through the simulations to evaluate the interface and interactions and communicating with coders so changes can be made before we begin testing in April.
