Teleoperation can be improved if humans and robots work as partners, exchanging information and assisting one another to achieve common goals. In this paper, we discuss the importance of collaboration and dialogue in human-robot systems. We then present collaborative control, a system model in which human and robot collaborate, and describe its use in vehicle teleoperation.
