Visual representation of interaction force and sound source in a teleoperation user interface for a mobile robot
Aurélien Reveleau, François Ferland, Mathieu Labbé, Dominic Létourneau, François Michaud
Pages: 1-23
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.4.2.Reveleau

Commercial telepresence robots provide video, audio, and proximity data to remote operators through a teleoperation user interface running on standard computing devices. As new modalities such as force sensing and sound localization are being...

Covert robot-robot communication: human perceptions and implications for human-robot interaction
Tom Williams, Priscilla Briggs, Matthias Scheutz
Pages: 24-49
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.4.2.Williams

As future human-robot teams are envisioned for a variety of application domains, researchers have begun to investigate how humans and robots can communicate effectively and naturally in the context of human-robot team tasks. While a growing body...

Cognitive design of an application enabling remote bases to receive unmanned helicopter resupply
Cynthia Dominguez, Robert Strouse, Elizabeth Lerner Papautsky, Brian Moon
Pages: 50-60
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.4.2.Dominguez

This paper reports on a research project that combined cognitive task analysis (CTA) methods with innovative design processes to develop a handheld device application enabling a non-aviator to interact with a highly autonomous resupply helicopter....

Mental workload and task performance in peer-based human-robot teams
Caroline E. Harriott, Glenna L. Buford, Julie A. Adams, Tao Zhang
Pages: 61-96
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.4.2.Harriott

Successful human-robot (H-R) teams working with direct interaction and close coupling will have relationships that vary, depending on whether or not collaboration is prioritized and how collaboration changes the human mental workload and the...

Robots that stereotype: creating and using categories of people for human-robot interaction
Alan R. Wagner
Pages: 97-124
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.4.2.Wagner

Psychologists note that humans use categories to simplify and speed up the process of person perception. Applications that require a robot to interact with a variety of different people will demand the creation of stereotypes representing...
