Abstract

The number and type of situations where robotic systems have been deployed continues to grow. From bomb disposal situations (with complete human interaction at the joint level) to simple maintenance of robotic vacuum maintenance, human intervention is still required to achieve sufficient performance and flexibility — especially when the system developed by the robotic system designers is used outside the scope for which it was designed.

From our experiences in the DARPA Robotics Challenge we have learned important lessons about a) what approaches are effective in human-robot teaming in unexpected environments and (2) what is needed to achieve sufficient performance improvements so as to justify the usage of humanoids in challenging disaster situations.
