The Army Science Board Panel was tasked to 1 Examine Army, DARPA, Navy, Air Force and NASA unmanned ground vehicle UGV and unmanned aerial vehicle UAV research and development efforts focused on human-machine interfaces, command and control of robots and supervisory control 2 Project technologies and capabilities into the 2015-2020 timeframe and assess technology voids that may remain 3 Determine the availability issues for applicable commercial systems and technologies and 4 Propose cost-effective options or strategies for addressing identified technology voids. The Panels findings discuss the absence of a systematic study of human-robot interface design and a disconnect between end-users and the development process. The Panels overall recommendations include 1 development of an operational architecture with support from experimental data collected in operationally relevant scenarios in realistic environments 2 Formulation of an FCS Block I human-robot interaction architecture consistent the FCS Operational Requirements Document in time for the FCS Milestone B decision and 3 Establishment of a Science and Technology program aimed at developing a technical architecture for human robot interactions focused on autonomous ground robots.
