OBJECTIVE We evaluate and quantify the effects of human, robot, and environmental factors on perceived trust in human-robot interaction (HRI). BACKGROUND To date, reviews of trust in HRI have been qualitative or descriptive. Our quantitative review provides a fundamental empirical foundation to advance both theory and practice. METHOD Meta-analytic(More)
—In the future, it will become more common for humans to team up with robotic systems to perform tasks that humans cannot realistically accomplish alone. Even for autonomous and semiautonomous systems, teleoperation will be an important default mode. However, teleoperation can be a challenging task because the operator is remotely located. As a result, the(More)
This study investigated the performance and workload of the combined position of gunner and robotics operator in a simulated military multitasking environment. Specifically, we investigated how aided target recognition (AiTR) capabilities for the gunnery task with imperfect reliability (false-alarm-prone vs. miss-prone) might affect the concurrent robotics(More)
OBJECTIVE A military multitasking environment was simulated to examine the effects of an intelligent agent, RoboLeader, on the performance of robotics operators. BACKGROUND The participants' task was to manage a team of ground robots with the assistance of RoboLeader, an intelligent agent capable of coordinating the robots and changing their routes on the(More)
We developed an intelligent agent, RoboLeader, that could assist human operators in route planning for a team of ground robots. We compared the operators' target detection performance in the 4-robot and 8-robot conditions. Results showed that the participants detected significantly less targets and had significantly worse situation awareness when there were(More)
We simulated a military mounted environment and examined the performance of the combined position of gunner and robotics operator and how aided target recognition (AiTR) capabilities (delivered either through tactile or tactile + visual cueing) for the gunnery task might benefit the concurrent robotics and communication tasks. Results showed that(More)
