Abstract: In a robotics context, visualizing the data scanned by a robot is crucial to understand what the robot's sensors perceive about its environment. Consequently, robotic visualizations show these values in a 3-D world, such that they can be compared with the real world. However these visualizations do not allow developers to see this data in a manner that allows it to be interpreted for program construction. As a result, these visualizations are in many cases ineffective for programming robot behaviors. To address this issue, we have built several visualizations of robot sensor data for the programming of behaviors, and we report on them here. Our visualizations focus on better revealing the hard data, which allows developers to faster understand it and consequently to faster create and adapt robot behaviors.
