  • This paper introduces a graphical user interface design that is aimed to apply to the surveillance and security robot, which is the pilot program for the army unmanned light combat vehicle. It is essential to consider the activities of robot users under the changing security environment in order to design the efficient graphical user interface between user and robot to accomplish the designated mission. The proposed design approach firstly identifies the user activities to accomplish the mission in the standardized scenarios of military surveillance and security operation and then develops the hierarchy of the interface elements that are required to execute the tasks in the surveillance and security scenarios. The developed graphical user interface includes input control component, navigation component, information display component, and accordion and verified by the potential users from the various skilled levels with the military background. The assessment said that the newly developed user interface includes all the critical elements to execute the mission and is simpler and more intuitive compared to the legacy interface design that was more focused on the technical and functional information and informative to the system developing engineers rather than field users.

  • Objective: This study aims to apply the concept of aging metaphor to personal service robots to deliver new experiences to users. Background: Personal service robots such as Softbank's Pepper and MIT Media Lab's Jibo have begun entering our lives. These service robots have the important function of interacting with human beings. Method: The robot aging metaphor is to transform the shape, color, motion, voice, and texture, which are visual, auditory, and tactile components, by applying the concept of aging to the robot interface. The robot applied with the concept of aging metaphor forms a close relationship with human beings and provides emotional value to them. We summarize herein the concept of robot aging metaphor and propose an application method using the system and feature of the natural aging process in the real world through the prototype. Results: Robot aging metaphor structure and applied researches of robot aging metaphor are suggested in designing robot interfaces. Conclusion: The results of the design framework of robot aging metaphor will help users to experience emotional value interacting with robots. The framework which is suggested should be applied to social robots in appropriate contexts. Application: Types of aging process which provides optimizing user experience for users should be validated through an experiment.

  • In this paper, we implement the internet- based remote control system for intelligent robot. For remote control of the robot, it uses the socket communication of the TCP/IP. It consists of- the user interface and the robot control interface. Robot control interface transmits the navigation and environmental informations of the robot into the user interface. In order to transmit the large environmental images, a JPEG compression algorithm is used. User interface displays the navigation status of the robot and transmits the navigation order into the robot control interface. Also, we propose the design method of the fuzzy controller using navigation data acquired by expert's knowledge or experience. To do this, we use virus-evolutionary genetic algorithm(VEGA). Finally, we have shown the proposed system can be operated through the real world experimentations.

  • The recent growth of the robot technology has made robots be popular and provides people with many opportunities to apply various robots. But most robots are controlled by its unique program, users feel hard and unfamiliar with robot. Therefore we need to find ways to make user feel comfortable and familiar with the usage of robot. First we will analyze how the user interacts with the robot. Next we will discuss a standard human-robot interface provide more usability with that analysis. In this paper, 10 degree of the Level Of Autonomy(LOA) are proposed. It is evaluated that what interface components and designs are proper to each LOA. Finally we suggest a way to design the standard human-robot interface for remote controlleds robot through handheld devices like the Personal Digital Assistant(PDA) and smart phone.

  • Robot control involves advance programming, scientific and high technology. The systematic and methodological aspects of robot controls often results in having superficial control design problems that can negatively affect the robot application, usability and appeal. User friendly interface of robot control is extremely advantageous and more attractive. To illustrate, the application of medical robot is usually handled by clients who have little background in advance programming language. Thus, it would be difficult if the client needs to use programming language to control the robot. It would justify better if the robot control is presented in a meaningful interface to the client. This way the robot application would be more natural and user friendly. This paper describes the method of developing the user interface for web based communication to control an internet robot named Tarou. The web based communication tasks involves three levels. The first one accommodates on the client sending commands to robot through the internet. The next communication level relates to the robot receiving the commands sent by the client. The final communication level generates on sending feedback on status of commands by the robot to the client. The methodology used here can be elaborated in four hierarchical steps; identify user needs and robot tasks, identify the enhancing tag reference used by the server, induce the tag into HTML, present the HTML in attractive user interface as the client control panel.

  • Robot design serves as the crucial link between a human and a robot, the cutting edge technology. The importance of the robot design certainly will be more emphasized when the consumer robot market matures. For coexistence of a human and a robot, human friendly interface design and robot design with consideration of human interaction need to be developed. This research extracts series of functions in need which are consisted of series of case studies for planning and designing of 'A Shopping Support Robot'. The plan for the robot is carried out according to HRI aspects of Design and the designing process fellows. Definite results are derived by the application of series of HRI aspects such as gestures, expressions and sound. In order to verify the effectiveness of application of HRI aspects, this research suggests unified interaction that is consisted of motion-capture, animation, brain waves and sound between a human and a robot.
