Paper Abstract

Head-aimed vision systems provide significantly improved situational awareness, accuracy, and decision speed for the tele-operation of agile robots. With head-aimed vision, wherever the operator looks, a sensor system onboard the remote vehicle "looks". When done correctly, head-aimed vision crates a powerful sense of telepresence. An overall performance increase of 250% was documented in tests we ran of reconnaissance tasks for an unmanned ground vehicle. Operator workload was also reduced.
