DtB Summit | Designing Human-Machine Interaction for Autonomous Systems [en]

Date

10th July, 12:20 - 13:40

Autonomous systems increase productivity and solve complex tasks in uncertain environments. This presentation aims to show how we can combine the best possibilities of man and machine.

We will talk about the importance of human interaction with autonomous and intelligent systems. 

Autonomous cars, robots in factory production lines and smart buildings — these are automated decision support systems. Already, more and more intelligent systems can be observed in many different fields, and in the future this phenomenon will be even more noticeable. If they are not designed with man in mind, the consequences may be conflicts and errors, or even danger. Various ways of designing interaction with autonomous systems are aimed at providing a secure, trustworthy and human environment. Automation is a key issue for Siemens in factories, power plants and in the context of mobility. Autonomous systems increase productivity and solve complex tasks in uncertain environments. However, to enable their safe interaction with people, it is necessary to meet many challenges. Human-oriented design proves crucial for the development of autonomous systems.
During the presentation, we will analyse how to create general confidence in autonomous systems. We will see how the user can understand the decisions and actions of the machine, and thus be able to predict and plan its behaviour. We will learn how we can combine the best possibilities of man and machine. We will also learn Sabine's experiences and Siemens’ research results that are used to design better and more human-friendly autonomous solutions.
