About NIFTi
NIFTi is about human-robot cooperation. About teams of robots and humans doing tasks together, interacting together to try and reach a shared goal. NIFTi looks at how the robot could bear the human in mind. Literally. When determining what to do or say next in human-robot interaction; when, and how. NIFTi puts the human factor into cognitive robots, and human-robot team interaction in particular.   Each year, NIFTi evaluates its systems together with several USAR organizations. Rescue personnel teams up with NIFTi robots to carry out realistic missions, in real-life training areas.

DR 3.2.2: Adaptive situated HRI for human-assisted navigation

This report presents the results of WP 3 for the second year of NIFTi. The overall objective of WP3 is to facilitate communication between the humans and robots, while jointly exploring a disaster area. In Year 2, WP 3 focused on communication to support human-assisted exploration in the context of a human-robot team, thus going beyond the originally envisioned setup of a single operator working with a single robot. The physical setting for the interaction remained such that most of the human team is located at a remote command post, outside of visible range of the robot operating in the hotzone. In Year 2 WP3 developed multi-view user interfaces to facilitate different views on information in the human-robot team, to help support different roles in the team. The interfaces provided multiple modes of communication, including touch and spoken dialogue. This setup was deployed during the end user evaluations at SFO in December 2011.
