Despite the trend toward automation of control of transportation systems, reliance on human-to-human communication remains necessary during situations when automation fails. High levels of ambient noise in transportation environments frequently impedes speech communication between operators, such as with operators of transit vehicles, pilots in cockpits, and truckers on CB radios. Development of robust human-to-human interaction increases safety and efficiency of transit operation and may also improve health of operators. This presentation will evaluate past enhancements in human-to-human interaction in transportation control systems and methods for further advances.
Emily Mugler is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her research interests include brain-computer interface for communication, human-computer interaction, communication in high noise environments, and practical application of neural interfaces.
