Abstract [en]

This research has examined robot operators' abilities to gain situational awareness while performing teleoperation with video feedback. The research included a user study in which 20 test persons explored and drew a map of a corridor and several rooms, which they had not visited before. Half of the participants did the exploration and mapping using a teleoperated robot (IRobot PackBot) with video feedback but without being able to see or enter the exploration area themselves. The other half fulfilled the task manually by walking through the premises. The two groups were evaluated regarding time consumption and the rendered maps were evaluated concerning error rate and dimensional and logical accuracy. Dimensional accuracy describes the test person's ability to estimate and reproduce dimensions in the map. Logical accuracy refers to missed, added, misinterpreted, reversed and inconsistent objects or shapes in the depiction. The evaluation showed that fulfilling the task with the robot on average took 96% longer time and rendered 44% more errors than doing it without the robot. Robot users overestimated dimensions with an average of 16% while non-robot users made an average overestimation of 1%. Further, the robot users had a 69% larger standard deviation in their dimensional estimations and on average made 23% more logical errors during the test.
