Using discrete event simulation to model multi-robot multi-operator teamwork

Conference Paper

With the increasing need for teams of operators in controlling multiple robots, it is important to understand how to construct the team and support team processes. While running experiments can be time consuming and expensive, the use of simulation models is an alternative method. In this study, we built a discrete event simulation model that represents multi-robot multi-operator teamwork. Preliminary results show that the model can generate performance measures consistent with experimental results. Copyright 2012 by Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, Inc. All rights reserved.
