This paper briefly sketches new work-in- progress (i) developing task-based scenar- ios where human-robot teams collabora- tively explore real-world environments in which the robot is immersed but the hu- mans are not, (ii) extracting and construct- ing ?multi-modal interval corpora? from dialog, video, and LIDAR messages that were recorded in ROS bagfiles during task sessions, and (iii) testing automated meth- ods to identify, track, and align co-referent content both within and across modalities in these interval corpora. The pre-pilot study and its corpora provide a unique, empirical starting point for our longer- term research objective: characterizing the balance of explicitly shared and tacitly as- sumed information exchanged during ef- fective teamwork.
