Abstract

How does one collaborate with and supervise a team? Here, we discuss a novel interface for managing tasks, developed as part of a multi-heterogeneous unmanned systems testbed, that aids cognitive operations and teaming. Existing models of team effectiveness among humans can frame cooperative teaming of computer agents and human supervisors. We use the three main characteristics of the input – process – output model to frame discussions of the task manager interface as a potential teaming facilitator, finding it should facilitate effectiveness on several elements. We conclude with the expectation of examination and support from future experiments.
