Survey on tools for robot teleoperation and environment visualisation

Hello, my name is Alistair Foggin, a student in the Computer Science department at the University of York, and I am conducting a survey to investigate the tools that people actively use in robotics research, development and industry. I am looking to develop a Virtual Reality tool for robot teleoperation and environment visualisation as part of a YorRobots internship, and want to see how best to design it with regards to existing tools, and user experience with those tools. The survey results would provide insight into what design decisions should be made for this tool. If you work, or have worked, in robotics at any capacity, it would be greatly appreciated if you would fill out the following survey. It should only take around 15 minutes to complete and will remain open to responses until the 19th of July at 12:00pm UTC.


Will you share the results of this survey afterwards?

Yes, I will. At the end of the research project I will post the writeup/poster of the results of the project, which will include the survey results, linking back to this post.

This is great! If you hadn’t seen it yet, the Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality for Human-Robot Interaction (VAM-HRI) subfield is very interested in this problem.

I’ll fill out your survey after work / happy to point you to some great surveys from the subfield as well. There are a few labs currently working on similar VAM teleop work that I’m sure would love to talk about it.

Thank you for pointing that out to me! I’ll take a look.

Thanks for filling it out. If you could point out those other surveys, that would be really helpful. It would be great to see more of what others are doing in the field.

There is a small split of the research work (or was, I am out of research as of Feb. of 2023) and sometimes you find work under the VAM-HRI banner so to say and some work under “extended reality” or “XR” for robotics. Worth throwing those terms into Google Scholar in my opinion / reaching out to the authors (all the people I met were great :slight_smile: )
