New project: EASIER
by Isabel Anger
Another new project is EASIER - Enabling and Assessing Trust when Cooperating with Robots in Disaster Response.
EASIER (funded by FFG KIRAS) investigates the interaction between humans and robots (Human Robot Interaction, Human Machine Teaming) in crisis management. An interdisciplinary team of psychologists, visualization experts, roboticists and emergency responders is investigating how the cognitive load on emergency responders can be reduced and how trust in robotic systems can be increased.
