The Peer-to-Peer Human-Robot Interaction (P2P-HRI) project is developing techniques to improve task coordination and collaboration between human and robot partners. Our hypothesis is that peer-to-peer interaction can enable robots to collaborate in a competent, non-disruptive (i.e., natural) manner with users who have limited training, experience, or knowledge of robotics. Specifically, we believe that failures and limitations of autonomy (in planning, in execution, etc.) can be compensated for using human-robot interaction. In this paper, we present an overview of P2P-HRI, describe our development approach and discuss our evaluation methodology.
