ATRV-Jr. Interface Human-Robot Interaction: A Straw Man approach to Interface Iteration This presentation will probably involve audience discussion, which will create action items. Use PowerPoint to keep track of these action items during your presentation In Slide Show, click on the right mouse button Select “Meeting Minder” Select the “Action Items” tab Type in action items as they come up Click OK to dismiss this box This will automatically create an Action Item slide at the end of your presentation with your points entered.

Goal In other words... A usable and strong interface specialized for Urban Search and Rescue of competition caliber folding in unique and novel functions and features that improve the experience for the end user and ultimately, improve performance.
Background Search and Rescue Human-Robot Interaction Human-Computer Interaction
Background: Search and Rescue National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) –2003 IJCAI AAAI 1st INEEL 2nd Swarthmore
Background: Search and Rescue Some known HRI issues in USAR –Bumping (Over 40% rear hits) –Camera pan awareness –Situation awareness –Pitch and roll
Background: HRI Taxonomy Human-robot interaction currently takes many forms. Dangerous tasks, such as urban search and rescue [Casper 2002, Casper and Murphy 2002] and hazardous material clean up [Bruemmer, Marble and Dudenhoffer 2002], require a human operator to be removed from the physical location of the robot. Robots that assist the elderly [Haigh and Yanco 2002] and the handicapped [Mittal et al. 1998] share the same physical space with their users, often transporting them through the world. Others, such as Sony’s Aibo, provide entertainment and companionship for people Yanco and Drury (2002)
HCI Models Mental Models User’s understanding of how a system works. System Models Way the system works from programmers perspective. Design Model The way the designer represents the system to the user. Norman
Interface Design Survey of selected USAR competitors UMass Lowell
Camera tilt and pan overlay Rear camera Controls Responsive interface
Interface Design: UMass Lowell To test: –Camera positioning –Rear front toggle (animation) –Map –Sonars
