Human-Autonomous-Machine Interactions

With the continued development of autonomy, autonomous machines are more and more expected to closely interact with humans. The two most representative examples are collaborative robots and automated vehicles which have been entering our daily lives and will be more and more in the future. The safe, efficient and comfortable interactions between humans and autonomous machines are actually challenging due to the heterogeneity of human elements and autonomy. This talk will introduce our research work in improving the interactions between humans and autonomous machines including both collaborative robots and automated vehicles. Methodologies and experiments will be introduced to illustrate our approaches.


Dr. Yunyi Jia is the McQueen Quattlebaum assistant professor in the Department of Automotive Engineering at Clemson University. He directs the Collaborative Robotics and Automation (CRA) Lab and his research focuses on robotics, autonomous vehicles, and advanced sensing systems. He is a recipient of the SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award, NSF CAREER Award, NSF CPS CRII Award, and SAE Trevor O. Jones Outstanding Paper Award. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University in 2014, M.S. in Control Theory and Control Engineering from South China University of Technology in 2008, and B.S. in Automation from National University of Defense Technology in 2005. He is a member of the IEEE, ASME and SAE.
