Abstract
Two general types of robotic systems in defence environments have been delineated; one for use in well established, highly structured, industrial-like environments and the other for "unstructured" environments. Limitations in "intelligence" capabilities of the technology, and the need for pragmatic implementations call for a human involvement in the real-time control of robotic systems. Three levels of human involvement are identified along with a general assessment of research needs to optimize man-robot interfaces. Objectives and resource limitations for the development of defence robotics in Canada are briefly examined. Details of incentives for defence robotics are also outlined.
