Human-Robot Interaction in UVs Swarming: A Survey

Zhen-Qiang Mi and Yang Yang

The purpose of this paper is to review research pertaining to the limitations and advantages of User-Robot Interaction for Unmanned-Vehicles (UVs) swarming. We identify and discuss results showing technologies that mitigate the observed problems such as specialized level of automation and human factors in controlling a swarm of mobile agents. In the paper, we first present an overview of definitions and important terms of swarm robotics and its application in multiple UVs systems. Then, the discussion of human-swam interactions in controlling of multiple vehicles is provided with consideration of varies limitations and design guidelines. Finally, we discussed challenges and potential research aspects in the area of Human-robot interaction design in large swarm of UVs and robots.

Keywords: Human-Robot Interaction, Multi-robot Systems, Unmanned-vehicle, Swarms
