In an alien or possibly hostile environment, the situation awareness of a remote robot operator will be limited. Map information may not be known beforehand. The site may also be in a dynamic state where changes occur in the surrounding in any moment. The main objective of this project is to develop novel technologies to increase situation awareness of remote robot operators and their ability to intuitively interact with the robots for more efficient operations. It will involve development of the use of commercially available stereoscopic display and motion sensing device for robot-control user interface, as well as an assessment on the development. MDA expects this project will develop proof-of-concept user interfaces based on novel ideas and technologies and test them in several simple scenarios. In the future some of these concepts may be adopted in prototypes and products.
