In this paper, we formalize the problem of human interaction with bio-inspired robot teams (HuBIRT). The formalism applies to a large class of bio-inspired team dynamics and uses simple algebraic graph theory representations to distinguish between interagent influence, environmental influence, and operator influence. These representations lead to metrics for interagent cohesiveness and responsiveness to human input. We then select two different classes of team dynamics, physicomimetics which… CONTINUE READING
