Human-Robot Interactions: Creating Synergistic Cyber Forces



Jean C. Scholtz


Human-robot interaction for mobile robots is still in its infancy. As robots increase in capabilities and are able to perform more tasks in an autonomous manner we need to think about the interactions that humans will have with robots and what software architecture and user interface designs can accommodate the human-in -the loop. This paper outlines a theory of human-robot interaction and proposes the interactions and information needed by both humans and robots for the different levels of interaction.
