Abstract
NASA has embarked on a long-term program to develop human-robot systems for sustained, affordable space exploration. To support this mission, we are working to improve human-robot interaction and performance on planetary surfaces. Rather than building robots that function as glorified tools, our focus is to enable humans and robots to work as partners and peers. In this paper, we describe our approach, which includes contextual dialogue, cognitive modeling, and metrics-based field testing.

Keywords
human-robot interaction, dialogue, cognitive models
