Supporting Human Supervision of Multiple Robots Julie A. Adams* *Vanderbilt University

Summary: Supporting Human Supervision of Multiple Robots
Julie A. Adams* *Vanderbilt University
1. Introduction
Practical applications for unmanned mobile
robotic vehicles (UMV) has exploded in recent
years. UMVs are deployed for emergency
response and military conflicts. Most current
UMV missions require human-in-the-loop control
of a single UMV. Long-term objectives include
deploying multiple autonomous UMVs that
require a single human to supervise their
activities. My research focus is the development
of human interaction for multiple UMV systems
that incorporate intelligent decision support
capabilities via distributed artificial intelligence.
An undergraduate Artificial Intelligence (AI)
course and Rosie, the robotic maid from the
television show The Jetsons' peaked my interest
in robotics. This interest led to graduate studies
in a number of AI related courses, which then
