This chapter describes augmented visual displays and audio and tactile cues used in human-robotic interface (HRI) displays. According to a recent North American Treaty Organization (NATO) report, human interface issues associated with individual uninhabited military vehicle (UMV) control station design include providing appropriate situational awareness and effective information presentation and control strategies. Early robotic control systems, including teleoperation systems in which the user co ntrolled robots from a distance mainly used visual feedback from a camera mounted on the robot. The chapter presents some of the extensive research performed in the area of ground control station displays for the HRI. Many researchers have explored visual, audio, and tactile modalities, as well as combinations of the three, and much of this research involves teleoperation. Spatial audio displays have been shown to increase situation awareness in the operation of unmanned robots from ground-based stations. Spatial audio and tactile displays have been used in the mitigation of pilot SD in aircraft.
