Multi-robot remote driving has traditionally been a difficult problem. Whenever an operator is forced to divide his limited resources (attention, cognition, etc.) among multiple robots, control becomes complicated and performance deteriorates as a result. Thus, we need to find ways to make command generation and coordination efficient, so that human-robot interaction becomes transparent and tasks are easy to perform. In this paper, we discuss how human-robot collaboration and dialogue provide an effective framework for achieving this.
