Turning a robot into an effective team-player requires continuous adaptation during its lifecycle to human team-members, tasks, and the technological environment. This paper proposes a concept for human-robot team development over longer periods of time and discusses technological and operational implications. From an operational perspective, we discuss the types of adaptations to team behavior that are required in a military house search scenario. From a technological perspective, we explain how teamwork adaptations can be implemented using a teamwork module based on ontologies and policies. The approach is demonstrated in a virtual environment, in which humans and robots collaborate to find objects in a house search. © 2018
