Crew & Ground Interfaces
TRACLabs is developing advanced human interfaces for NASA and other customers, including advanced caution and warning systems for Orion and habitat operations.
These interfaces intelligently process the telemetry stream to detect patterns and activities that require human attention. The interface then decides which people need notification, how that notification should be performed and what information should be presented. These tools also provide event summarization and reporting.
Distributed Collaboration Infrastructure (DCI)
Coordinating the actions of multiple people and autonomous systems is a challenge. TRACLabs Inc. researchers have been developing an agent-based infrastructure for coordinated teamwork between humans and autonomous systems for the last decade. The DCI framework ensures that the right information gets to the right person at the right time so they can make an informed decision.
