Abstract - A human-robot interface for a mobile robot was
extended to include a discrete geodesic dome called a
Sensory EgoSphere (SES) The SES is a two-dimensional
data structure, centered on the robot's coordinate frame.
The SES provides the robot's perspective of a remote
environment via images, sonar, and laser range finder
representations. It was proposed that the SES would
enhance the general interface usability by decreasing
perceived workload and increasing situational awareness.
A human factors evaluation was performed to evaluate the
established hypothesis. Novice users participated in the
evaluation. The purpose of this paper is to review some of
the evaluation results.
