|Title:||Touch and Toys - new techniques for interaction with a remote group of robots|

|Abstract:||Interaction with a remote team of robots in real time is a difficult human-robot interaction (HRI) problem exacerbated by the complications of unpredictable real- world environments, with solutions often resorting to a larger-than-desirable ratio of operators to robots. We present two innovative interfaces that allow a single operator to interact with a group of remote robots. Using a tabletop computer the user can configure and manipulate groups of robots directly by either using their fingers (touch) or by manipulating a set of physical toys (tangible user interfaces). We recruited participants to partake in an extensive user study that required them to interact with a small group of remote robots in simple tasks, and present our findings as a set of design considerations.|
