"Effective human-robot interaction (HRI) remains a critical barrier to the successful and widespread deployment of robotic technologies. Fundamentally, HRI problems represent breakdowns in communication, where poor information exchange between people and robots leads to disfluencies, incorrect mental models, poorly calibrated trust, inadequate situational awareness, etc. In this paper, I argue that the emergence of a new generation of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality (VAMR) technologies is creating an exciting new design space in which to address these problems in communication. To support this argument, I present the results of three experiments demonstrating the value in using modern VAMR technologies to mediate human-robot interactions and discuss various challenges and opportunities in this emerging space at the intersection of several communities, including robotics, VR, graphics, and human-computer interaction."
