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.
