Abstract:

In this paper we report on the analysis of critical incidents during a robot urban search and rescue competition where critical incidents are defined as a situation where the robot could potentially cause damage to itself, the victim, or the environment. We look at the features present in the human-robot interface that contributed to success in different tasks needed in search and rescue and present guidelines for human-robot interaction design.
