Abstract
Teleoperation can be significantly improved if humans and robots work as partners. By adapting autonomy and human-robot interaction to the situation and the user, we can create systems which are easier to use and better performing. In this paper, we discuss the importance of collaboration and dialogue in human-robot systems. We then present a system based on collaborative control, a teleoperation model in which humans and robots collaborate to perform tasks. Finally, we describe our experiences using this system for vehicle teleoperation.
