Naghsh, Amir M. and Roast, Chris R. (2009): User interfaces for robots swarm assistance in emergency settings. In: Proceedings of the HCI09 Conference on People and Computers XXIII 2009. pp. 324-328. Available online

In this paper, we describe the development processes adopted for effective human centred design in the context of developing a human robot interface. The human robot interactive setting represents a significant development challenge on two counts: interaction is to be with a swarm of autonomous robots, and; the robots are to assist the process of search and rescue as carried out by fire fighters committed into the-field of incident. The paper goes on to illustrate an approach to design evaluation motivated by user centred design objectives. The conclusion from studies illustrate that the complex nature of professional practice in the high risk settings has significant influences upon the fitness for purpose. Overall we are able to show that despite the complexity of effective user engagement in development we are able to apply user centred principles productively.

Naghsh, Amir M. and Roast, Chris R. (2008): Designing user interaction with robots swarms in emergency settings. In: Proceedings of the Fifth Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2008. pp. 519-522. Available online

In this paper, we describe the development processes adopted for effective human centred design in the context of developing a human robot interface. The human robot interaction context is that of a working with a swarm of autonomous robots being developed to assist the process of search and rescue as carried out by fire fighters. The paper illustrates an approach to early design evaluation motivated by user centred design objectives. The conclusion from the study illustrates the value of early experiential feedback. In particular we show that the complex nature of professional practice in the high risk settings has significant influences upon the fitness for purpose.
