Aims:

This task is part of the Human Capabilities Assessments for Autonomous Missions (HCAAM) Virtual NASA Specialized Center of Research (VNSCOR) deliverable. This task  will investigate the effects of a virtual task assistant combining procedure automation with augmented reality multi-modal AARM user interfaces on human task performance. The virtual task assistant will assist the crew in becoming familiar with planned procedures, in performing procedure actions, and in maintaining awareness of procedure actions taken by other crew members or automation. This task has the following aims:

  • Aim 1: Determine best methods to improve situation awareness and improve crew autonomy when using a virtual task assistant to prepare for and perform manual maintenance.
  • Aim 2: Determine best methods to improve situation awareness and reduce workload when a virtual task assistant is used to handover maintenance tasks between users.
  • Aim 3: Determine best methods to improve situation awareness and reduce workload when using a virtual task assistant to help manage concurrent manual and automated tasks.
