The ORCA Hub: Explainable Offshore Robotics through Intelligent Interfaces

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

We present the UK Robotics and Arti cial Intelligence Hub for O shore Robotics for Certi cation of Assets (ORCA Hub), a 3.5 year EPSRC funded, multi-site project. The ORCA Hub vision is to use teams of robots and autonomous intelligent systems (AIS) to work on o shore energy platforms to enable cheaper, safer and more e cient working practices. The ORCA Hub will research, integrate, validate and deploy remote AIS solutions that can operate with existing and future o shore energy assets and sensors, interacting safely in autonomous or semi-autonomous modes in complex and cluttered environments, co-operating with remote operators. The goal is that through the use of such robotic systems o shore, the need for personnel will decrease. To enable this to happen, the remote operator will need a high level of situation awareness and key to this is the transparency of what the autonomous systems are doing and why. This increased transparency will facilitate a trusting relationship, which is particularly key in high-stakes, hazardous situations.
