Human Robot Interaction

Effective and Efficient HRI for dismounted military applications.

For my PhD dissertation, I am developing a novel mixed reality interface for effective and efficient human robot interaction with unique mobility platforms for dismounted military applications. The goal is to understand how robot type (e.g. wheeled vs legged) and visual complexity (i.e. low vs high) for a mixed reality interface affect cooperative human-robot teaming in dismounted military applications. In the video below, Hannah Rodgers, an undergraduate research assistant that is contributing to this research, briefly demonstrates controlling a wheeled and legged robot using HoloLens.
