Abstract
Teleoperation of remote robotic systems, including battlefield systems is, cognitively speaking, a complex task. Operators of such systems are required to be 'virtually present' with respect to their perception at the sites where the teleoperated systems operate. Because of its richness in conveyed information, vision is the most important sense for such operations, providing feedback which is critical to the operator's effectiveness. A video display is the principle feedback link with the remote system. The paper discusses the operational benefits and issues of stereoscopic video in telerobotics. A new display system is then introduced. It incorporates stereoscopic views of the real world, in conjunction with various other virtual steroscopic constructs, including graphic and text overlays. The current and future functional capabilities of the display system are then reviewed and the project status is summarized.
