Polonius: A Wizard of Oz Interface for HRI Experiments

In "Proceedings of the 6th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction (Late Breaking Papers Track)", Lausanne, Switzerland, 2011.

Polonius is a robot control interface designed for running Wizard of Oz style experiments. It is designed to be easy enough to be used by the non-programmer collaborators of roboticists. The program acts as an intermediary between the robot and a wizard interacting with a GUI based on a pre-defined script. Polonius also eliminates the need for coding the video after experiments by integrating a robust logging system.
