Multi-robot systems adoption is increasing for disaster response, industry, and transport and logistics. Nevertheless, humans will remain indispensable to control and manage these fleets of robots, and particularly so in safety-critical applications. However, more sophisticated AI techniques creates unintelligible robot control programs that are not necessarily human-centered. Furthermore, a human operators’ cognitive capacities are challenged (and eventually exceeded) as the sizes of autonomous fleets grow. Our goal is to assess various means of measuring the operators cognitive load in an exploration task with six UAVs.
