Abstract
Human-robot collaboration has significant potential to improve planetary missions. Specifically, by enabling humans and planetary rovers to work together in the field we can greatly increase mission productivity while reduc-ing cost, particularly for surface operations such as mate-rial transport, survey, sampling, and in-situ site characterization. Thus, we are developing a personal user interface to enable EVA crew members and mobile robots to collaborate and jointly perform tasks in the field. In this paper we describe the motivation for our work, present the design and implementation of our user inter-face, and discuss our planned field testing methodology.
