Abstract

In the field of Human-Robot Interaction, researchers often techniques such as the Wizard-of-Oz paradigms in order to better study narrow scientific questions while carefully controlling robots’ capabilities unrelated to those questions, especially when those other capabilities are not yet easy to automate. However, those techniques often impose limitations on the type of collaborative tasks that can be used, and the perceived realism of those tasks and the task context. In this paper, we discuss how Augmented Reality can be used to address these concerns while increasing researchers’ level of experimental control, and discuss both advantages and disadvantages of this approach.
