Abstract:Synchronized Co-located Interreality Collaboration (SCIC) occurs when co-located agents synchronously collaborate between different realities. This form of collaboration can offer several advantages over face-to-face collaboration but can also bring about a number of problems. Related work and the experiment performed in this research project hint at several challenges that are likely to surface (such as communication mishaps and the lack of teammate awareness) but also demonstrate several strategies to help mitigate or prevent some of these challenges (such as using a suitable communication medium, allowing teams to adapt to opportunities and constraints, and helping teams maintain awareness). These strategies were tested in a prototype research environment which includes features that support location-sharing and teammate-awareness. How people used the system and what they thought of it was tested in an experiment which showed that participants used the location-sharing feature often and the teammate-awareness feature less. The experiment indicates that SCIC could lead to more effective individual tasking and less effective teaming. It is therefore recommended to carefully balance task effectiveness with teaming intelligence.
