Software Productivity of Field Experiments Using the Mobile Agents Open Architecture with Workflow Interoperability
Found in: Space Mission Challenges for Information Technology, IEEE International Conference on
By William J. Clancey,Michael Lowry,Robert Nado,Maarten Sierhuis
Issue Date:August 2011
pp. 85-92
We analyzed a series of ten systematically developed surface exploration systems that integrated a variety of hardware and software components. Design, development, and testing data suggest that incremental buildup of an exploration system for long-duratio...
Beyond Cooperative Robotics: The Central Role of Interdependence in Coactive Design
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Matthew Johnson, Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, Paul J. Feltovich, Robert R. Hoffman, Catholijn Jonker, Birna van Riemsdijk, Maarten Sierhuis
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 81-88
<p>As automation becomes more sophisticated, the nature of its interaction with people will need to change in profound ways. Many approaches to designing more team-like cooperation between humans and machines have been proposed&#x2014;most recent...
AI Space Odyssey
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Michael G. Shafto, Maarten Sierhuis
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 16-19
<p>Dramatic advances have been made in intelligent systems from 1980 to 2010. The Web has created an environment in which some of the basic problems identified in the 1970s are emerging in new, often more concrete and practical forms. Correspondingly...
Assessing Human-Agent Teams for Future Space Missions
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Nanja Smets, Jeffrey M Bradshaw, Jurriaan van Diggelen, Catholijn Jonker, Mark A. Neerincx, Lennard J.V. de Rijk, Pieter A.M. Senster, Maarten Sierhuis, Ot ten Thije
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 46-53
Running computer simulations of work practices early on lets researchers test human-agent teams in dangerous, complex environments by incrementally increasing fidelity, adding realistic features, and incorporating human participants.
Comparing Route Selection Strategies in Collaborative Traffic Flow Management
Found in: Intelligent Agent Technology, IEEE / WIC / ACM International Conference on
By Shawn R. Wolfe, Francis Y. Enomoto, Peter A. Jarvis, Maarten Sierhuis
Issue Date:November 2007
pp. 59-62
No summary available.
Management of Interdependencies in Collaborative Software Development
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering, International Symposium on
By Cleidson R. B. de Souza,David Redmiles,Gloria Mark,John Penix,Maarten Sierhuis
Issue Date:October 2003
pp. 294
In this paper we report results of an informal field study of a software development team conducted during an eight week internship at the NASA/Ames Research Center. The team develops a suite of tools called MVP, and is composed of 31 co-located software e...
Modeling and Simulating Work Practice: A Method for Work Systems Design
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Maarten Sierhuis, William J. Clancey
Issue Date:September 2002
pp. 32-41
<p>This article presents a human-centered work system design method based on modeling and simulating work practice-that is, what people actually do. Rather than abstracting human behavior as work processes or tasks-functional idealizations of the wor...
Human-agent-robot teamwork
Found in: Proceedings of the seventh annual ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI '12)
By Maarten Sierhuis, Catholijn M. Jonker, Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, Virginia Dignum
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 487-488
Teamwork has become a widely accepted metaphor for describing the nature of multi-robot and multi-agent cooperation. By virtue of teamwork models, team members attempt to manage general responsibilities and commitments to each other in a coherent fashion t...
Toward coactivity
Found in: Proceeding of the 5th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '10)
By Birna van Riemsdijk, Catholijn Jonker, Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, Maarten Sierhuis, Matthew Johnson, Paul J. Feltovich
Issue Date:March 2010
pp. 101-102
This paper introduces the concept of Coactivity as a new focal point for Human-Robot Interaction to address the more sophisticated roles of partner or teammate envisioned for future human-robot systems. We propose that most approaches to date have focused ...
Formal verification of human-robot teamwork
Found in: Proceedings of the 4th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human robot interaction (HRI '09)
By Maarten Sierhuis, Michael Fisher, Rafael H. Bordini
Issue Date:March 2009
pp. 5-6
We here address the modelling and analysis of human-agent teamwork, specifically in the context of proposed astronaut-robot collaboration in future space missions. We are particularly interested in modelling such systems at a level that allows formal verif...
