Evaluation of VR-maneuvering of a firefighting robot (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis evaluates the suitability of using a VR-interface to help maneuver a teleoperated robot designed to assist firefighters. Head mounted displays together with teleoperated robots are becoming more popular but the question is if the technology can be adapted to fit the needs and requirements of the firefighters. The technology will be used in high-stress situations without a big margin for error. Focus group interviews and user tests together with an analysis of current research have been performed to try and give an answer on how suitable VR-interfaces are.

To efficiently implement a VR-interface the developers of the robot need to have a clear user profile. The designers need to use the expert knowledge of the firefighters for best results. The implementation will overall have a positive effect on the users situational awareness and the robot will become easier to maneuver, given that the developers use hardware compatible to the needs of VRglasses.
