Design a telerobotics interface that would allow a remote operator to control a group of Roombas as a flock, allowing them to perform physical actions that requires cooperation and coordination, for example carrying an oversized and overweight object together.
Design a remote telerobotics interface to the Pioneer. The Pioneer can carry a 360 camera (example), and the remote interface can be based on a VR headset (both will be provided to the project group) in order to enhance the situational awareness of the remote operator and immerse her in the remote interaction task. The project can include an element where the locomotion capability of the robot is used to remotely solve physical puzzles from distance (e.g., locating objects, following instructions placed in the remote space, remotely hacking into distant computer using NFC, etc).
Design a telerobotics interface that would allow a remote operator to create a stylized/artistic movement pattern for a remote group of Spheros, using sketch based interaction. For example, the remote movement can be an aesthetic pattern, a dynamic artistic flow, or a dance.
Design an interface that would allow Baxter to play the Improv Mirror Game. In the mirror game one player mimics the actions performed by the other player (example and another example). The mirror game has applications in improve drama, but also in rehabilitation medicine where it can encourage clients to perform a set of physical actions. The Baxter mirror game will either allow a user to lead Baxter on a set of upper-torso actions, or allow Baxter to perform a set of upper-torso actions leading human players. Baxter mirror game has HRI research potential, exploring HRI research questions on authority and leadership in the Baxter-leading condition.
Design an interface that would allow flying the drone above an area while marking, designating, and visually logging areas of interest in the drone video-feed. Note: the drone group will have direct access to the Bebop drone during the design, but actual flights will be limited, and done on campus on prescribed times and locations due to safety and other concerns.
