The deployment of autonomous systems is expected to exponentially increase in the near future. The use of these systems will enable both military and commercial organizations to execute tasks and accomplish missions more quickly and effectively while reducing risks to human operators and costs. Since the use of autonomous systems is still relatively new, there are challenges associated with trusting these systems. Without operators in direct control of all actions, there are significant concerns associated with endangering human lives or damaging equipment. This project seeks to identify ways to improve decision-maker and operator trust when deploying autonomous systems, and de-risk their adoption.
