Transparency mechanisms aim to mitigate this challenge by providing users with information about the robot's internal processes. While most research in human-robot(More)
Operating robots across networks with unknown, bandwidth, latency and other conditions presents difficulty when the operation depends on real-time feedback and control. Standard video compression methods do a good job compressing arbitrary video, but do not take domain knowledge into account when more information about the video is known beforehand. We have(More)
Humanoid robots are achieving mechanical capabilities that enable them to walk, run, and manipulate objects in their environment. To successfully interact with the world, they also need to be able to sense their environment. Human environments contain many visual cues, and visual feedback is a primary modality of human-human interaction, making it essential(More)
