Abstract : This report encompasses seven papers presented at the Seventh International Symposium on Aviation Psychology and adaptive automation technology. Adaptive automation differs from conventional automation in that it is capable of invoking itself (i.e. turning itself on). The research described in this report presents contemporary research into a variety of adaptive automation issues: workload, situation awareness, cycles of automation, control and authority, and alternative interface concepts.
