Robotic assistance has been demonstrated as an effective way to provide in-person assistance, while when human users need remote assistance, Augmented Reality Task Guidance (ARTG) has been shown to be intuitive and efficient. This study explores the extension of robotic assistance in scenarios where the human and robot are no longer co-located, specifically, we investigate the design possibilities and challenges of integrating robot assistants into ARTG systems. Our design process was inspired by Re-embodiment based and Telepresence-based identity designs, where our design goal is clear communication and understanding between users and their robot helpers in AR environments.
