Advances in robot technology and artificial intelligence have increased the range of robot applications as well as the importance of supporting human interaction with robots and robot teams. Previous work by the authors has highlighted the importance of creating neglect tolerant autonomy and efficient interfaces. In this paper, lessons learned from evaluating neglect tolerance and interface efficiency are compiled into a set of principles for efficient interaction. Emphasis is placed on designing efficient interfaces, but many of the principles require autonomy levels that support the principles. Each principle is illustrated by an example and motivated by citing relevant factors from cognitive information processing.
