Abstract
Experts from the Robotics Institute were individually interviewed for their insight on interface lessons for fully and semi-autonomous mobile robots. Information was collected on four main themes: challenges, things that seem to work well, things that do not work well, and interface wisdom. The comments were then condensed and pooled into seven high-level categories: safety, remote awareness, control, command inputs, status and state, recovery, and interface design. Classification of expert comments was relatively straightforward in that many interviewees identified consistent material. This suggests that those producing interfaces for fully and semi-autonomous mobile robots should, at the minimum, ensure that they have addressed these broad topics.
