played in the human's eyewear to determine
whether the human could interpret
the changes in the environment.
In studying communication between
the robot and human team, the re -
searchers tested different resolution
LiDAR sensors on the robot to collect
measurements of the environment and
detect changes. When those changes
were shared using augmented reality to
the human, the researchers found that
human teammates could interpret
changes that even the lower-resolution
LiDARs detected. This indicates that
depending on the size of the changes
expected to encounter, lighter, smaller,
and less expensive sensors could perform
just as well and run faster in the process.
Future studies will continue to ex -
plore how to strengthen the teaming be -
tween humans and autonomous agents
by allowing the human to interact with
the detected changes, which will provide
more information to the robot
about the context of the change; for
example, changes made by adversaries
versus natural environmental changes
or false positives. This will improve the
au ton omous context understanding
and reasoning capabilities of the robotic
platform such as by enabling the
robot to learn and predict what types of
changes constitute a threat. In turn,
providing this understanding to autonomy
will help re searchers learn how to
improve teaming of soldiers with au -
tonomous platforms.

System Provides Robots with
Context Awareness
The system enables robots to predict what their human
coworker will do next.

orking safely is not only about
processes but context - understanding
the work environment and circumstances
and being able to predict
what other people will do next. A new
system empowers robots with this level
W
of context awareness, so they can work
side-by-side with humans on assembly
lines more efficiently and without un -
necessary interruptions.
