The Human Research and Engineering Directorate HRED, U.S. Army Research Laboratory ARL and partner Tank and Automotive Research Development Command TARDEC embarked on a 5-year Army Technology Objective ATO research program that addressed human robot interaction HRI and teaming for both unmanned aerial vehicles UAV and unmanned ground vehicles UGV. The programs objective was to understand HRI issues in order to develop technologies and mitigations that enhance HRI performance in future combat environments. In order to put the five year program in manageable perspective, we summarized five important HRI principles and supporting results that emerged from the research effort. The principles cover the benefits of teaming relations for robotic missions as well as crew multitasking problems associated with future robotic missions and possible solutions. We also discussed the importance of individual differences for HRI design and training implications and the advantages of multimodal interfaces and adaptive automation.
