The days of specifying missions for mobile robots using traditional programming languages such as C++ and LISP are coming to an end. The need to support operators lacking programming skills coupled with the increasing diversity of robot run-time operating systems is moving the field toward high-level robot programming toolsets that allow graphical mission specification. This paper ex plores the issues of evaluating such toolsets as to their usability. We first examine how usability criteria are… Expand
