Paper Abstract

This extended abstract documents our on-going work in the area of determining what autonomy a planetary rover should exhibit and how the autonomy can be interfaced to the human users of the rover. A key constraint on the autonomy is that human user and machine must be able to cooperatively carry out planetary geological sampling and field-work. We describe an approach that uses an icon language to advise an autonomous rover and to present rover feedback to the user. The icon language can be translated to plan networks in the 7S model4''2 . We present an extensive ''pencil paper'' example of using the interface to carry out cooperative exploration.
