Tracking trust between human and robot work interactions
Here is the future of work.
In an era where humans are increasingly working with robots in close proximity, it is important to make sure that this relationship is smooth, effective and beneficial for humans. This working relationship is dependent on the trustworthiness of robots and human willingness to trust their behavior. Researchers at Texas A&M University’s Wm Michael Barnes Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering are working to overcome the challenge of capturing trust levels in humans due to their subjectivity.
Dr. Ranjana M. Mehta is an associate professor at the NeuroErgonomics Lab and its director. She said that her lab’s research on human-robot interaction in safety-critical domains stemmed from several projects.
