Influence of Cultural, Organizational, and Automation Capability on Human Automation Trust: A Case Study of Auto-GCAS Experimental Test Pilots  (2014)
Abstract Header
This paper discusses a case study that examined the influence of cultural, organizational and automation capability upon human trust in, and reliance on, automation. In particular, this paper focuses on the design and application of an extended case study methodology, and on the foundational lessons revealed by it. Experimental test pilots involved in the research and development of the US Air Force's Automatic Ground Collision Avoidance System served as the context for this examination. An eclectic, multi-pronged approach was designed to conduct this case study, and proved effective in addressing the challenges associated with the case's politically sensitive and military environment. Key findings indicate that the system design aligns with both pilot culture and the organizational mission, indicating the potential for appropriate trust development in operational pilots. These results point to the importance of the low- vulnerability/high risk nature of the pilot profession, automation transparency and suspicion, system reputation, and the setup of and communications among organizations
involved in the system development.
