This chapter introduces a set of example applications of human-robot interfaces with augmented reality (AR) technology. Previously, robots were used in controlled environments such as factories for automation, performing highly repetitious tasks. Nowadays, robots are widely distributed throughout society and can be found performing a range of tasks such as daily housekeeping, search-and-rescue missions, and human-robot communications. Figure 15.1 shows an example of robots ranging from household appliances to mobile robots. AR technology is able to contribute to visualizing information between robots and users in those situations.
