    Abstract

    This poster paper introduces results from project European Union research project ROBORDER (Au-tonomous Swarm of Heterogeneous Robots for BORDER Surveillance) and specially its the novel user interface for drone swarms mission control. User interface will be based on Microsoft Mixed Reality Solution with Augmented (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). The novel interface enabling the op-erator i) to monitor missions of swarm of robots; and ii) have a natural interaction metaphor with the control system, providing to the operators the ability to remotely control the vehicles. Development follows main principle of user centred design. The first proof-of-concept was developed in early phase of the project to collect feedback from various user groups. The second version, functional prototype is ready for user tests, which will be done with end-users with real drone mission.
