Dr. Yue “Sophie” Wang wins $50,000 ARO grant
Yue “Sophie” Wang, the Warren H. Owen – Duke Energy Assistant Professor of Engineering, has won a grant to support the project on “Trust-based Optimal Guidance and Navigation for Multiple Manned-Unmanned Vehicles”. The grant is funded by the Army Research Office.
This project aims at establishing trust-based control and scheduling algorithms for multiple manned and unmanned vehicles teaming as a foundation for next generation survivable systems.
There are 4 tasks for this project:
- PI will investigate on how to navigate a team of vehicles passing through desired routes and reduce human workload by choosing optimal autonomy level and designing optimal control law simultaneously
- PI will explore and establish quantitative measures for human workload based on human server model and Yerkes-Dodson law.
- PI will investigate simultaneously trust-based optimal switching rules and switching control laws to achieve balanced human workload and vehicle navigation accuracy.
- PI will create dynamic pairing and real-time scheduling for multi-human multi-vehicle teaming
