Abstract
Multi-robot remote driving has traditionally been a dif-ficult problem. Whenever an operator is often forced to divide his limited resources (attention, decision making, etc.) among multiple robots, control becomes complicated and performance quickly deteriorates as a result. To rem-edy this, we need to find ways to make command generation and coordination efficient, so that human-robot interaction is transparent and tasks are easy to perform. In this paper, we discuss the use of collaboration, human-robot dialogue and waypoint-based driving for vehicle teleoperation. We then describe how these techniques can enable a single operator to effectively control multiple mobile robots.
