  • 11th Conference on Human Factors in Robots, Drones and Unmanned Systems, July 24-27, 2024, Nice, France

    During 15th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE 2024, July 24-27) at the University Cote d'Azur, Nice, France, I have the pleasure of inviting you to submit the papers to the 11th International Conference on Human Factors in Robots, Drones and Unmanned Systems (HFRDUS). Papers are due on February 15th (

    The AHFE 2024 Conference Proceedings will be published in multi-volume edited open access books and submitted for indexing worldwide for digital libraries and others. All books published in the series are submitted for consideration in Web of Science.

    Researchers are conducting cutting-edge investigations in the area of unmanned systems. The efforts aim to change how humans operate vehicles by reducing the number of personnel hours and dedicated resources necessary to execute the systems. The growing use of unmanned systems across all military and commercial sectors is the direction of the future. Optimizing human-robot interaction is critical because the farther removed the operators are from the system, the more important their ability to intervene becomes. Along the same lines, the fewer the number of people involved in a system’s operation, the more important each individual becomes. Researchers are developing theories as well as prototype displays that could be built into actual systems. Because humans tend to be the most flexible part of “unmanned” systems, the Human Factors and Unmanned Systems focus considers the role of the human early in the development process in order to create the best functional devices.

    Areas of interest include, but are not limited to those listed here:

    - Automation issues and robotics
    - Consequences of degraded reliability of automated unmanned functions for performance of the automated task and of concurrent tasks
    - Applications of robots and robotics in surgical and medical procedures
    - Perceptual and cognitive issues in unmanned systems and robotics
    - Role of augmented reality displays or synthetic vision systems to successfully compensate for the degraded visual imagery provided by onboard sensors
    - Multimodal display technology applications to compensate for the dearth of sensory information available to a unmanned vehicle operator
    - Extent to which displays and controls can be standardized across unmanned systems?
    - Predictable autonomous behavior for unmanned system following a loss of communications
