Abstract:

To enable effective communication between users and autonomous robots, it is crucial to have a shared understanding of goals and actions. This is made possible through an intelligible interface that communicates relevant information. This intelligibility enhances user comprehension, enabling them to anticipate the robot's actions and respond appropriately. However, because robots can perform a wide variety of actions and communication resources are limited, such as the number of available "pixels", visualizations must be carefully designed. To tackle this challenge, we have developed a visual design framework. Leveraging Unity, we developed a Virtual Reality implementation to prototype and evaluate our framework. Within this framework, we introduce two visualization techniques for visualizing the movement of a robotic arm, laying a foundation for subsequent development and user testing.
