Answering the "So What" Question: How can Human Factors help with implementing automation in the Oil and Gas Industry
December 2 - December 2, 2022
10:00 AM ET
The better the automated systems are, the lower the situation awareness of the human operators, and the less likely that they will be able to take over manual control when needed.
This is one of the ironies of automation. Automated systems rapidly grow in popularity in the oil and gas sector due to their many advantages, from reducing mistakes to improving efficiency.
However, at the same time, these systems introduce new challenges and risks.
Dr. Endsley will introduce the “human-autonomy systems oversight model” developed based on several decades of applied research that includes out-of-the-loop performance problems, monitoring, and trust, among many others.
The webinar will also provide an overview of the key solutions to reduce the risk of human performance issues when interacting with autonomous systems such as human-automation interface features, central automation interaction paradigms comprising levels of automation, adaptive automation, and granularity of control approaches.
