Autonomous robots with sophisticated capabilities can make it difficult for human instructors to assess its capabilities and proficiencies. Therefore, it is important future robots have the ability to: introspect on their capabilities and assess their task performance. Introspection allows the robot to determine what it can accomplish and self-assessment allows the robot estimate the likelihood it will accomplish at given task. We introduce a general framework for introspection and self-assessment that enables robots to have task and performance-based dialogues before, during, and after a mission. We then realize aspects of the framework in the cognitive robotic DIARC architecture, and finally show a proof-of-concept demonstration on a Nao robot showing its self-assessment capabilities before, during, and after an instructed task.
