Abstract : Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs) show great potential in allowing humans to interact with computational environments in a synergistic and complementary way. This project focused on acquiring a mobile robotic agent platform that can be used to explore these interfaces for a variety of real-world tasks and environments of interest to the Army. It aims to extend our current work, for creating systems enabling mutually-derived situation awareness which use BCI to synergistically couple human expertise and computational intelligence. This DURIP extends this work by providing a test environment where the human control of a robot agent can be experimentally validated in real-world scenarios. The robot platforms used are the Willow Garage PR2 personal robot [21], a humanoid like robot with a mobile omnidirectional base, and a Baxter dual-arm robotic manipulator.
