Abstract
This paper de nes a hierarchy of human supervisory
mediation levels into a robotic system. This interaction
creates a semi-autonomous system which should enable
completion of all feasible tasks. We propose that the
increased interaction between the supervisor and all lev-
els of a robotic system will permit a human supervisor
to maintain the system in a stable state. We have in-
corporated these hierarchical levels in MASC, a Mul-
tiple Agent Supervisory Control system which provides
the human supervisor with a three dimensional graphical
user interface. Our current test bed includes four mobile
robots, of which two are equipped with manipulators.
