We have been investigating ways to improve human-robot interaction (HRI) and situation awareness (SA) in urban search and rescue (USAR). In this task, a human directs the navigation of a remotely located robot using an interface that provides controls and status information. In this paper, we discuss the many facets of our work aimed at improving HRI for remote robot operation.
