This paper presents a dynamic experimental test bed for exploring
and evaluating human-robot interaction (HRI). Our system is designed around
the concept of playing board games involving collaboration between humans and
robots in a shared physical environment. Unlike the classic
human-versus-machine situation often established in computer-based board
games, our test bed takes advantage of the rich interaction opportunities
that arise when humans and robots play collaboratively as a team. To
facilitate interaction within a shared physical environment, our game is
played on a large checkerboard where human and robotic players can be situated
and play as game pieces within the game. With meaningful interaction
occurring within our confined setup, various aspects of human-robot
interaction can be easily explored and evaluated such as interface methods.
We also present the results of a user evaluation which shows the sensitivity
of our system in assessing robotic behaviours.
