Incorporating contextual cues and contextual understanding into the development of an autonomous robot can advance the robot's decision-making capabilities, but may also help improve the human's understanding of those decisions to improve team effectiveness. While a number of these benefits are discussed below, there are just as many, if not more, challenges associated with developing context-driven autonomy. These benefits and challenges are discussed below to support ongoing and future human-robot teaming efforts.
