## Human-Robot Interaction for the Wild

Published:

This talk will discuss the role of human-robot interaction for small and personal unmanned aerial vehicles in public spaces. Prior personal space studies involving humans and robots have found social similarities to the ways in which humans interact with one another, but these findings have been limited to ground-based vehicles. In this presentation, it will be argued that those results may not generalize to aerial vehicles, and that human-robot interactions for small flying robots could be quite different. This has significant implications as the personal-drone movement has resulted in an accelerated diffusion of flying robots into human-centric domains such as emergency response, manufacturing and delivery, and health and fitness. Specific research questions that will be addressed include: 1) What are the appropriate parameters for three-dimensional interaction models for co-located humans and robots? 2) What operational factors are important to consider and report when conducting field-based robotics experiments to better inform future human-robot interaction? 3) What role does improved human-robot interaction play in aiding individual and team decision-making among humans? This discussion will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the robotics community, as well as those in the fields of civil and environmental engineering, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, and the social sciences.

## Human-Robot Interaction for High Performing Teams in Field Applications

Published:

This talk will discuss the role of human-robot interaction in field-based robot deployments and be focused on three individual research areas: integration of robots into high performing teams, improved teleoperation, and necessary autonomy for improved team performance. Specific research questions that will be addressed include: 1) What role does the use of aerial vehicles play in shared decision making with high performing and potentially distributed teams? 2) How can interfaces and interactions amplify the current reach of the end users? and 3) What adaptations are necessary within the autonomy to augment user perceptions in field-based environments? This discussion will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in agriculture and robotics communities, as well as those in the fields of human factors, artificial intelligence, and the social sciences.

## Investigating Distancing and Communicative Flight Paths with small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Published:

In order to appropriately interact in public spaces, small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sUAVs) will need to be able to approach people in safe, comfortable, and legible ways. This talk will focus on the distancing and communicative components of flight paths individually before considering the path forward to combine these investigations. Specific research questions that will be addressed are: 1) What is the appropriate distance for sUAV interaction, and how does this change based on the person, the vehicle, and the environment?, 2) How do naïve users interpret flight path changes and what similarities do they display when they create their own flight paths?, and 3) How can vehicle, environment, and robot application impact both the size and legibility of the flight paths? This discussion will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in field robotics and sUAV communities, as well as those in the fields of human factors, artificial intelligence, and the social sciences.

## Human-Robot Interaction, Fall 2015

In this 3-credit seminar-style class which was piloted as a 496/896, students are guided through an overview of human-robot interaction as a field, explore a topic of their choosing both individually and as a class, and have guest lectures from practitioners. The goal of this course is for students to not only gain an understanding of the current state of HRI as a field, but also to learn research methods to aid them in their future careers. Students are expected to present papers in both 30 minute and 10 minute formats, write critiques for each class meeting, complete a literature review on a topic of their choosing, and prepare a short NSF-style proposal based on a problem identified and refined through their literature review.

## Human-Computer Interaction, Spring 2016

Undergraduate Class, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, 2016

This course was based on an existing department course and is a 3-credit lecture-based course with the primary assessments being in-class assignments, short individual presentations, and a semester-long group project. The group project is based on an idea formed by the groups themselves where each group is required to create an interface to solve a problem they identified (ranging from a replacement for the current clicker system to an app that helps keep track of your pet’s needs). Students learn the basics of human-computer interaction, including topics such as: input devices, web-based design, design principles and methodologies, and evaluation techniques. The group project has seven deliverables, leading to an assignment due roughly every two weeks and the assignments generally follow the lectures and smaller hands-on activities conducted in class. In class activities are designed to both elicit questions and demonstrate understanding prior to working with users. This course teaches the students how to identify a problem, elicit user constraints, prototype a solution to gain feedback, perform testing with the solution, and present the results.
