This report describes the outcomes of a 2015 Technical Exchange Meeting TEM dedicated to identifying the gaps and prioritizing critical research areas in the human-robot interaction HRI field, focusing on unique mobility robots UMRs with special manipulation capabilities to progress peer-to-peer, tactical human-robot teaming. The TEM was held to develop a unified vision for HRI research to enable teaming among Soldiers and UMRs and to identify points of intersection in the Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance RCTA to facilitate HRI research. Accomplishing this goal required input from all RCTA technical areas including Dexterous Manipulation and Unique Mobility, Intelligence, and Perception. The TEM achieved the following a joint understanding of the state of the art of UMRs, identification of technical areas in which HRI can assist UMRs and support prototype delivery, and prioritization of an action plan for future HRI in UMR research.
