The Effect of Situation Awareness Acquisition in Determining the Ratio of Operators to Semi-Autonomous Driving Vehicles

Abstract

We used a technical readiness level assessment to obtain intervention time and the time to acquire situation awareness for different classifications of interventions. We analyzed this data to determine if it is feasible for one operator to control multiple robots of this type in similar environments. We conclude that in both terrains analyzed (an arid terrain and a wooded terrain) it would be feasible for one operator to control two robots. While it is also possible for an operator to work on another task and control a robot as well, there is an issue of providing situation awareness about the robot. There are also constraints on the tasks that could be effectively accomplished.
