"Grip-that-there": An Investigation of Explicit and Implicit Task Allocation Techniques for Human-Robot Collaboration [article]

Karthik Mahadevan, Maurício Sousa, Anthony Tang, Tovi Grossman
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Inspired by HCI research on territoriality and proxemics, we propose a design space of novel task allocation techniques including both explicit techniques, where the user maintains agency, and implicit  ...  The techniques were implemented and evaluated using a tabletop HRC simulation in VR.  ...  The Unity environment consists of a tabletop workspace that is shared by a user and a collaborative robotic arm.  ...
