ABSTRACT
As multiple robot systems become more common, it is necessary
to develop scalable human-robot interfaces that permit the
inclusion of additional robots without reducing the overall system
performance. Workload and situational awareness play key roles
in determining the ratio of m operators to n robots. A scalable
interface, where m is much smaller than n, will have to manage
the operator's workload and promote a high level of situation
awareness. This work focused on the development of a scalable
interface for a single human-multiple robot system. This interface
introduces a relational "halo" display that augments a camera
view to promote situational awareness and the management of
multiple robots by providing information regarding the robots'
