Abstract:

The goal of this research was to examine how robotic operators performance differed. depending on the type and number of assets available. Operator strategies for using multiple robotic vehicles were examined. We also investigated how sensor feed degradations affected operators performance and perceived workload. The results suggest that giving robotic operators additional assets may not be beneficial. Target detection was most poor for the teleoperated vehicle Teleop. probably because of the demands of remote driving. Slowing sensor-fed video frame rate or the imposition of a short response latency of 250 ms between Teleop control and reaction failed to affect operators performance significantly.
