Trained human co-workers can often easily predict each other's intentions based on prior experience. When collaborating with a robot coworker, however, intentions are hard or impossible to infer. This difficulty of mental introspection makes human-robot collaboration challenging and can lead to dangerous misunderstandings. In this paper, we present a novel, object-aware projection technique that allows robots to visualize task information and intentions on physical objects in the environment. The approach uses modern object tracking methods in order to display information at specific spatial locations taking into account the pose and shape of surrounding objects. As a result, a human co-worker can be informed in a timely manner about the safety of the workspace, the site of next robot manipulation tasks, and next subtasks to perform. A preliminary usability study compares the approach to collaboration approaches based on monitors and printed text. The study indicates that, on average, the user effectiveness and satisfaction is higher with the projection based approach.
