Title: User Interface with Multisensory Feedback for Fluid Powered Rescue Robot
Author: Daepp, Hannes G. ; Book, Wayne John
Abstract: A semi-autonomously controlled fluid-powered legged search and rescue robot is proposed as a solution to the ever-increasing demand for more versatile rescue robot technology. The success of such a robot is dependent on the existence of a user interface that optimizes the balance between user and machine decisions and provides the operator with the appropriate amount of information to soundly make such decisions. The system design, consisting of a simulation/physical robot, on-board computer, and operator interface are described. Aspects of the relation between operator input and robot motion are discussed, such as the influence of feedback on operator actions or the integration of input into semi-autonomous gaits. The basis for tests seeking to optimize the interface design is established.
