Our Goal

The Technical Committee on Shared Control is a brand new group, formed of international specialists who envision a world in which human-machine interaction is safer, more intuitive, more comfortable and more robust to differences in environment and users. The aim of the Technical Committee on Shared Control is to accelerate research towards that goal, by stimulating scientific discussions and international collaborations, in both academia and industry. Over the past decades the principles of shared control have been gaining interest in a broad range of research and engineering communities as a design approach that integrates the best of both worlds: the fast, reliable, precise and inexhaustible task execution capabilities of automation and the complementary inventive, adaptive and interactive task execution skills of humans. Although recent research has shown that shared control can enhance the capabilities of both humans and automation in a wide variety of applications (driving, flying, wheelchair control, tele-operation of robots, etc.), there is not much consensus on how to design or particularly how to evaluate such systems.

We aim to reach our goals by providing a platform to gain consensus about design and evaluation of shared control systems, across different application fields. Further details about the TC and its recent activities are available on our website.
