Switch and Deliver: Display layouts for MOMV (Multiple Operator Multiple Video feed) environments Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • `Switch and Deliver' is a research project directed to design and develop tools/techniques and procedures to aid operators in handling Multiple Operator Multiple UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) environments. It aims to identify what information and which tools and layouts will decrease switch-costs and improve overall mission performance. Nevertheless, most tools/techniques can be generalized to any Multiple Operator Multiple Video feed (MOMV) environments, where control of multiple video sources, task switching and/or coordination with other operators are necessary for mission success. In this paper we describe a study conducted on proficient operators, examining three display layouts. It aims to examine how the operating interface facilitates handoffs and video feed switching among operators. Experimental methodology and findings are discussed.
