Abstract

Towards a Unified Representation for Human-Robot Control Architectures

Abdelouahab Zaatri

Purpose: The actual and futurist development of different kind of intelligent robots and their various possible interactions with humans are pressing towards a homogeneous representation of Human-Robot control architectures. This paper intends to contribute to an outline towards the development of a unified control architecture for HumanRobot Interaction Systems (HRIS) that eliminates the distinction between humans and artificial intelligent systems when working together as team members.

Methods: This unification should be based on formal analogies that categorise the functions and competencies of both human operators and intelligent artificial systems as well. According to a review of some models developed for robot control architectures and for human operator performances; one can found formal analogies that can be amenable to a common control architectural representation.

Results: In this context, two models are particularly remarkable: the hybrid multi-layer control architecture for representing artificial intelligent systems in the one hand; and Rasmussen’s human performance model in the other hand.

Conclusion: These two models can be initiated a basis for establishing a unified representation for the control architecture of HRIS involving human and robots as team members to carrying out tasks and missions in a collaborative way.
