This paper describes a usability study designed to assess ease of use, user satisfaction, and performance of a mobile robot mission specification system. The software under consideration, MissionLab, allows users to specify a robot mission as well as compile it, execute it, and control the robot in real-time. In this work, a new automated mission repair mechanism that aids users in correcting faulty missions was added to the system. This mechanism was compared to an older version in order to better inform the development process, and set a direction for future improvements in usability.
