An assigned responsibility system for robotic teleoperation control

Nicolas Small, Kevin Lee, Graham Mann
2018 International Journal of Intelligent Robotics and Applications  
Assigned Responsibility is a new form of adjustable autonomy-based teleoperation that allows the selective inclusion of automated control elements at key stages of a robot operation plan's execution.  ...  In situations where the environment is reasonably known and/or predictable, pre-planning these control changes could relieve robot operators of the additional task of deciding when and how to switch.  ...  Depending on the state of the plan execution, it can continue, or be re-planned.  ...
