Abstract

Human Factors play a significant role in the development and integration of avionic systems to ensure that they are trusted and can be used effectively. As Unoccupied Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology becomes increasingly important to the aviation domain this holds true. The study presented in this paper aims to gain an understanding of UAV operators’ trust requirements when piloting UAVs by utilising a popular aviation interview methodology (Schema World Action Research Method), in combination with key questions on trust identified from the literature. Interviews were conducted with six UAV operators, with a range of experience, to identify the trust requirements that UAV operators hold and their views on how UAV swarms may alter the trust relationship between the operator and the UAV technology. Both methodological and practical contributions of the research interviews are discussed.
