Situation awareness analysis

Baptiste Prébot, PhD student under the direction of Jean-Marc Salotti developed a methodology to analyze and assess representation sharing and situation awareness in groups of humans, possibly involving robots or artificial intelligence systems. An experiment has been carried out with two persons and a vehicle. The first person was assigned the role of mission control and the second person the role of an astronaut driving a vehicle using a real driving interface but in a simulated environment (surface of Mars in virtual reality). The two persons were located in different rooms and could communicate only by voice. Mission control had to guide the driver to a specific location. Every minute, the experiment was stopped and the two persons were asked to make a cross on a map corresponding to what they believe was the location of the vehicle. Comparisons of crosses on the maps, including ground truth locations, enabled us to determine the exactness of the localization and the degree of correct sharing of the situation. This experiment helped us better understanding communication and sharing issues, which are particularly relevant for the design of tasks and procedures for robotic operations.
