Usability study of a robot companion for monitoring industrial processes (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Sita, E., Thomessen, T., Pipe, A. G., Studley, M., & Dailami, F. (2020). Usability study of a robot companion for monitoring industrial processes. In 2020 5th Asia-Pacific Conference on Intelligent Robot Systems (ACIRS). , (37-42). https://doi.org/10.1109/acirs49895.2020.9162607

In this paper we present the findings of a usability study for a monitoring robotic unit tele-operated via a virtual fixtures (VF) based control framework. The study aims at investigating the impact of VF on the robot navigation as well as the impact... Read More about Usability study of a robot companion for monitoring industrial processes.

VENTURER was one of the first three UK government funded research and innovation projects on Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) and was conducted predominantly in the South West region of the country. A series of increasingly complex scenarios cond... Read More about A connected autonomous vehicle testbed: Capabilities, experimental processes and lessons learned.

Examining profiles for robotic risk assessment: Does a robot's approach to risk affect user trust? (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Bridgwater, T., Giuliani, M., van Maris, A., Baker, G., Winfield, A., & Pipe, T. (2020). Examining profiles for robotic risk assessment: Does a robot's approach to risk affect user trust?. In Proceedings of the 2020 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction. , (23-31). https://doi.org/10.1145/3319502.3374804

© 2020 Association for Computing Machinery. As autonomous robots move towards ubiquity, the need for robots to make decisions under risk that are trustworthy becomes increasingly significant; both to aid acceptance and to fully utilise their autonomo...
