We kindly invite you to participate in a new research study being conducted by Dr. Brittany Duncan's Human-Robot Interaction research group at the Nebraska Intelligent Mobile Unmanned Systems (NIMBUS) Lab, University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

This study is designed to train users in UAV flight and investigate how users interact with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The results of this study will help us understand the different factors that contribute towards user proficiency in operating UAVs, and help us improve training and instruction methods.

We are looking for people willing to participate in a study where you will be trained to fly a UAV, look at several short videos, answer questionnaires, and evaluate a UAV. In phases 1 and 3 we will conduct pre- and post- training evaluations respectively (4 sessions of 2 hours each). You will be trained to fly the UAV in phase 2 (20 sessions of 30 minutes each). Your participation in this experiment is entirely voluntary. The study is open to anyone 19 years of age or older, and not living or traveling in or to an European Economic Area (EEA) country while enrolled as a participant (where you will be subject to EU GDPR).

Participants are eligible to receive compensation and a drone!

Sign up for the study using the QR-code in the poster or this link.

If you are interested in learning more about being a participant in this experiment, or if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email at or email Dr. Duncan at If you know someone who might be interested in participating in the study, please feel free to forward this email to them.

This research study is approved by the Institutional Review Board of UNL with project ID 21201. Your assistance in helping us meet our research goals would be greatly appreciated.
