Humans and robots have been increasingly used not only in the same workspace, but
as team members that interact to accomplish overall mission goals. With a multitude of
options developing for how humans and robots can simultaneously participate on a team,
it has become necessary to quantitatively analyze the performance of the heterogeneous
teams to enable comparison between different team configurations. This paper contains a
survey of the field of collaborative human and robot team performance metric models, and
examines existing overall team quantitative performance models to determine which are
more applicable to future human and robotic space exploration missions.
I. Introduction
As technology has been advancing and designers have been looking to future applications, it has become
increasingly evident that robotic technology can be used to supplement, augment, and improve human per-
formance of tasks. With more options developing for how robotic technology can be used in an integrated
human and robot team (HRT), new methods to assess individual agent performance and overall team perfor-
mance have been developed. There has been significant work to resolve issues related to automating system
functions, creating robotic agents that can resolve task-implementation issues independently, improving the
