Abstract:

IST-032RTG-014 aim was to consider the potential of modern multi-robot systems for the use in military domains. There has been substantial interest in the use of MRS for a variety of military purposes. A better understanding of human computer andor robot interaction requirements and development of techniques for evaluating the effectiveness of MRS to meet military purposes will provide military users with a basis for determining their requirements for this technology. The group identified possible application areas for Human-Multi-Robot Systems in military domains 1 Reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition RSTA 2 Ordnance disposal, mine clearing operation, de-mining and NBC decontamination 3 Security, defence and sniper discovery 4 Tactical considerations like decoy, deception and precision strike 5 Transport, convoying and rescue and 6 Sensor and communication networks.
