Engagement and not workload is implicated in automation-induced learning deficiencies for unmanned aerial system trainees
MetadataShow full item record
Automation has been known to provide both costs and benefits to experienced humans engaged in a wide variety of operational endeavors. Its influence on skill acquisition for novice trainees, however, is poorly understood. Some previous research has identified impoverished learning as a potential cost of employing automation in training. One prospective mechanism for any such deficits can be identified from related literature that highlights automation's role in reducing cognitive workload in the form of perceived task difficulty and mental effort. However three experiments using a combination ...
