NASA FISO Presentation: Coactive Design – Designing for Interdependence in Robotics
Now available is the March 18, 2015 NASA Future In-Space Operations (FISO) telecon material. The speaker was Matthew Johnson (Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition) who discussed “Coactive Design: Designing for Interdependence in Robotics”.
Matthew Johnson has worked at the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition since 2002. He received his B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, a M.S. in Computer Science from Texas A&M – Corpus Christi, and his PhD in Computer Science through Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
Prior to working for IHMC, he flew both fixed and rotary wing aircraft in the Navy, retiring after 20 years of service. He has worked on numerous projects including the Oz flight display for reducing the cognitive workload in the cockpit, Augmented Cognition for improving human performance, and several human-‐robot coordination projects for both NASA and the Department of Defense.
He has worked on advanced robotic control projects such as the DARPA Little Dog project developing walking algorithms for a quadruped robot on rough terrain and the IHMC lower body humanoid developing low-‐gravity walking gaits for NASA. Most recently, he has been working on developing interfaces to enable micro-‐air vehicle control in complex urban environments and competing in the DARPA Robotics Challenge. Matthew’s research interest focuses on improving performance in human-‐machine systems through design of more effective human-‐machine teamwork.
