Abstract
This paper examines whether the potential benefits outweigh the expected costs of using stereoscopic video (SV) instead of monoscopic video (MV) for hazardous materials teleoperation. The first part presents the various benefits ascribed to SV, discusses why these benefits should apply to teleoperation, and outlines the expected costs. The second part presents two laboratory experiments showing that using SV can dramatically decrease learning time and improve performance. The third part presents two operations-like experiments conducted with trained telerobot operators of a variety of skill levels; it demonstrates that operators strongly prefer SV, consider it significantly better for most teleoperation tasks, and rate SV to be more useful and more comfortable to use than MV.
