The U.S. Army has been conducted research on advanced technology for several decades, summarized in about 30 reports and presentations. A major theme has been the use of automation and new technology to support the operation of ground vehicles, both manned, remotely operated, and autonomous. Topics have included partial automation of the driving task, various designs for displays to present information to drivers and commanders (e.g., head-mounted displays), the design of controls used for driving, requirements for training, the effect of degraded visual environments on driving, automatic target recognition, and a range of other topics. The presentation will provide an overview of the research methods and tools used, as well as a summary of the findings.
