What is the best description and abbreviation for a Interface from a robot? If you work in the Industrial automation you probably will use Human Machine Interface (HMI) and if you are a software programmer you maybe call it GUI (Graphical User Interface). At the moment I prefer URI (User Robot Interface) because it describes the interaction between the Human and the Robot. Of course we can discus if a machine you have to control is really a robot, but lets assume the robot can also operate by itself.
This items is also added to the User Interface article at Software.
