When controlling robot in-situ, the operator’s attention is often divided between the scene and the interface.
This often causes inefficiency in the control performance. One possible solution to address this attention switch is to employ a camera (or sensor) view (despite being at the site) in which critical parts of the operating environment can be shown side-by-side with the control interface so that the user is not distracted from the either.
In addition, when the user switches one’s attention away unavoidably and then back to the control interface, the interface can be configured so that user can easily continue the task at hand without momentary the loss of context.
We describe the design of such an interface and investigate in the possible user attentive behaviors based on it. In-Situ HRI Video
