Goals: The goal for this workshop is to present recent advancement of human-autonomy interaction and integration. It is motivated by a healthy growth of the body of research in many areas related to systems and control, including but not limited to, design and verification of safe co-robots in an industrial environment, autonomous or assisted driving on highways, human on-the-loop control and monitoring of swarms of unmanned vehicles, and assist-as-needed control of wearable robotics. Canonical control systems design and analysis tools have found their way into solving a small subset of problems, but are still largely on a case-by-case basis. Research in this domain require a good balance between model-based methods and learning-based methods, and between fully autonomy and human guidance. Major challenges naturally arise in addressing the lack of first principles and proven mathematical models for human intentions and human behaviors. We have envisioned that the control community will play a more crucial role in human autonomy interaction and integration by taking on challenges including: joint decision making, verifiable safety, learning based adaptation, workload and comfort management, trust calibration and control. We aim to report recent research achievements and identify these relevant challenges, as well as a review for testbed and facilities for this domain of research.

We have successfully organized two workshops on human-autonomy interaction and integration in ACC2021 and ACC2022, respectively. The field of human robot interaction and cyber physical human systems is booming with several dedicated workshops and invited sessions appeared in major control and robotics conferences, which motivates us to organize the 3rd workshop on this topic in ACC 2023. We also believe an in-person workshop will also facilitate the brainstorming and discussion of recent advances and future directions in human-autonomy interaction and integration.

The workshop is endorsed and supported by the IEEE Technical committee on Manufacturing Automation and Robotic Control (TC-MARC) and the DSCD Biosystems and Healthcare Technical Committee (BSHC-TC).
