|Description:||Human-Swarm Interaction (HSI) systems combine the usefulness of swarms with the intuitive control of HRI techniques, enabling these systems to be used in the field alongside humans. Human swarm interaction needs to be done in such as way that the operator can influence the robots to perform the required tasks while preserving the autonomy of the swarm. A balance needs to be achieved while working with human-swarm systems as increasing the autonomy of the swarm can underload the human while doing the vice-versa will overload them.
We aim to go a step forward, where the human is not merely giving commands to a swarm of robots. The robots will cooperate with the robot to complete a task together. Our goal is to show that this approach, when implemented with a swarm, increases the overall efficiency of the task more than only-human or only-swarm configuration.
