ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, MD  Artificial intelligence, or AI-enabled systems, are a part of everyday life — people use AI software to figure out the best way to navigate to new places, ask virtual agents in phones to answer questions, as well as have robots patrol the supermarket to ensure shelves stay stocked. The military is no exception — it expects robots to do dull, dirty dangerous jobs. AI support tools help solve complicated problems.

At the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory, researchers developed Transparent Multi-Modal Crew Interface Designs, which are part of the laboratory’s Human-Autonomy Teaming Essential Research Program. The project involves the development of technologies that support Soldiers’ ability to team with AI-enabled robotic tanks.
