Publication year 2011 Abstract In this study we investigate miscommunications in interactions between human pilots and a virtual wingman, represented by our virtual agent Ashley. We made an inventory of the type of problems that occur in such interactions using recordings of Ashley in flight briefings with pilots and designed a perception experiment to find evidence of human pilots providing cues on the occurrence of miscommunications. In this experiment, stimuli taken from the recordings are rated by naive participants on successfulness. Results show the largest part of miscommunications concern floor management. Participants are able to correctly assess the success of interactions, thus indicating cues for such judgment are present, though successful interactions are better recognized. Moreover, we see stimulus modality (audio, visual or combined) does not influence the ability of participants to judge the success of the interactions. From these results, we present recommendations for further developing virtual wingmen. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
