Multiple robot-single human interaction: Effects on perceived workload
Abstract
This paper presents results from a user evaluation of a real multiple robot system in which the human's
perceived workload and performance were measured. Participants completed tasks with one, two, and
four real heterogeneous mobile ground-based robots for indoor material transportation tasks. Twelve
participants completed four trials of each task over two days. Generally speaking, little difference was
found between the one and two-robot tasks; however perceived workload significantly increased while
performance decreased during the four-robot task. A correlation analysis found that perceived workload
increased as the number of commands (in total and by command type) and completion times increased.
