Abstract
We previously discussed the need for enterprise-level human-robot interface standards (data, communication, etc.) to enable effective use of robotic systems in space exploration. In that paper, an early commitment to standards development was recommended and a tentative path outlined. This paper examines in greater depth some of the underlying assumptions of our prior work and attempts to establish part of the foundation on which the recommended standards may be built. Specifically, we examine the premise that the broad range of human-robot interaction (HRI) needed for space exploration will present sufficient commonality to make interface standards feasible and useful. To ground our work, we explore one specific area of HRI and provide an initial roadmap for standardization.
