Virtual and Augmented Reality Interfaces for Artificial Intelligence Enhanced Decision-Making Processes

Project: Research

Project Details


Two sponsored PhD studentships aimed at studying and developing more comprehensive user interfaces for computer-aided decision-making processes, which can benefit from 3D/360 visualization, wearable and immersive displays, virtual and augmented reality technologies, eye-tracking and HCI design solutions.
The project looks at new methods to increase tele-presence and situational awareness in tele-exploration and tele-intervention for:
•Immersive observations of operational scenarios and network-centred operation (NCO) information, including positions, threats and airborne warning and control systems (AWACS).
•Streamlined and effective decision making in complex scenarios.
•Natural interaction and communication between command and control (C2) theatre and operational units, and among individuals in C2 theatres.
•Effective C2 operations and training
PhD students will work independently in a collaborative research environment under the shared supervision of Dr Salvatore Livatino (Principal Researcher at the University of Hertfordshire) and Dr. Alessandro Zocco, (Industrial Supervisor at Elettronica SpA / ELT). The PhD students mainly based at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield, UK, may spend limited periods of work at ELT in Rome.
