Abstract

On the next military combat mission, space shuttle flight, or mission to Mars think of what it would be like if R2-D2, Luke Skywalker's backseater in his X-wing fighter, was along for the mission. In the movie, Star Wars, R2-D2 had both intelligence and personality. If we were to design a real R2-D2 (e.g., an automated aviation assistant, a synthetic crewmember, a computerized co-pilot, or a 'Pilot's Associate') for the next generation of avionics, what personality characteristics should we give it? We know that personality effects behavior and as a result affects how we see problems and subsequently, solve them. This paper considers how an avionics system with selected personality characteristics could be designed to both improve a mission performance.
