In this chapter, we summarize the findings and knowhow in the individual developments of rescue robots and attempt to establish design guidelines for the human interface for rescue robots. The guidelines for image display were established on the basis of some case studies in the DDT project and RoboCupRescue. Since the established guidelines are general and independent of the purpose of a robot, we decided to build a standardized image display prototype. After introducing some implementation examples based on our guidelines, the standardized image display prototype is presented. The established guidelines would be useful for the future development of rescue robots. Further, the prototype image display is a good example of a standardized interface testbed.
