Dr. Christopher Miller authors article in Human Robot Interaction
Dr. Christopher Miller has authored an article in a special issue of the journal Human Robot Interaction based on work conducted with and for the 25 members of the NATO Research and Technology Office Panel 270 on Supervisory Control of Uninhabited Military Vehicles. The panel involved representatives from eight different NATO countries sharing information and sometimes collaborating on the development of 13 different robotic vehicle projects. Dr. Miller's role was to develop a framework for characterizing and presenting the similarities and differences in these "tech demos" and, thus, a taxonomy for the range of supervisory control relationships. This article summarizes the projects and presents two novel frameworks (with accompanying visualizations) for characterizing them. The special issue focuses on "Global Perspectives on Human Robot Interaction" and Dr. Miller's article was selected to provide both a military and a international perspective across participating NATO countries.
