Abstract

The article outlines a description method and a common language to structure and depict configurations for highly automated human-machine systems, involving cognitive agents, for autonomous vehicle guidance and mission management. Therefore, this article outlines a procedure to follow to design and describe human-autonomy teaming systems, system requirements, and top-level system designs. This contribution primarily aims at the application field of military, highly automated manned/unmanned vehicle systems.
