This paper discusses an approach for predicting system performance resulting from humans and robots performing repetitive tasks in a collaborative manner. The methodology uses a systematic approach that incorporates the various effects of workload on human performance, and estimates resulting performance attributes derived between teleoperated and autonomous control of robotic systems. Performance is determined by incorporating capabilities of the human and robotic agent based on accomplishment of functional operations and effect of cognitive stress due to continuous operation by the human agent. This paper provides an overview of the prediction system and discusses its implementation on a simulated rendezvous/docking task.
