Richard T. Stone,
Tele-robotics is an area of robotics concerned with the control of robots from a distance, chiefly using wireless connections like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, the Deep Space Network, `tethered' connections, or the Internet. Most tele-robotic systems are teleoperated which means that it relies on the human operator's capabilities. Many aspects like limited perception, cognitive workload, mental capacity, and stress of human operator can restrict human's level 3 SA in operating tele-robotic systems. This study investigated the impact of tele-robotics system operation on operator SA and driving performance. Also it identified specific cognitive factors that affect operator performance and SA in operating a tele-robotic system. Finally, this study was to understand the impact of human workload on performance.
