We present an augmented reality human-swarm interface that combines two modalities of interaction: environment-oriented and robot-oriented. The environment-oriented modality allows the user to modify the environment (either virtual or physical) to indicate a goal to attain for the robot swarm. The robot-oriented modality makes it possible to select...

In this paper, we investigate how to design an effective interface for remote multi-human–multi-robot interaction. While significant research exists on interfaces for individual human operators, little research exists for the multi-human case. Yet, this is a critical problem to solve to make complex, large-scale missions achievable in which direct...

How can multiple humans interact with multiple robots? The goal of our research is to create an effective interface that allows multiple operators to collaboratively control teams of robots in complex tasks. In this paper, we focus on a key aspect that affects our exploration of the design space of human-robot interfaces -- inter-human communicatio...

Transparency is a key factor in improving the performance of human-robot interaction. A transparent interface allows humans to be aware of the state of a robot and to assess the progress of the tasks at hand. When multi-robot systems are involved, transparency is an even greater challenge, due to the larger number of variables affecting the behavio...

Due to the potentially large number of units involved, the interaction with a multi-robot system is likely to exceed the limits of the span of apprehension of any individual human operator. In previous work, we studied how this issue can be tackled by interacting with the robots in two modalities --- environment-oriented and robot-oriented. In this...
