The paper investigates new methods and tools for design of next-generation telematic systems based on hybrid teams of cooperating robots and humans. The contribution presents selected issues of building the feature of presence in such systems, deals with human-robot integration and cooperation issues together with drawbacks and benefits of the technology in question. The presented approach is focused onto investigation of a search and rescue type of tasks and provides evaluation of results obtained in proof-of-concept experiments. Keywords: telematic system, human-robot cooperation, personal navigation, search and rescue.
