Subject: AR Club Tech Talk: Augmented Reality to Enable Human-Robot
Cooperative Search

Abstract: Robots operating alongside humans in field environments have the
potential to greatly increase the situational awareness of their human
teammates. A significant challenge, however, is the efficient conveyance of
what the robot perceives to the human in order to achieve improved
situational awareness. We believe augmented reality (AR), which allows a
human to simultaneously perceive the real world and digital information
situated virtually in the real world, has the potential to address this
issue. Motivated by the emerging prevalence of practical human-wearable AR
devices, we present a system that enables a robot to perform cooperative
search with a human teammate, where the robot can both share search results
and assist the human teammate in navigation to the search target. We
demonstrate this ability in a search task in an uninstrumented environment
where the robot identifies and localizes targets and provides navigation
direction via AR to bring the human to the correct target.

Basically come check out AR + Robots live demo.
