Title: A Robot Ontology for Urban Search and Rescue
Published: June 26, 2006
Abstract: The goal of this Robot Ontology effort is to develop and begin to populate a neutral knowledge representation (the data structures) capturing relevant information about robots and their capabilities to assist in the development, testing, and certification of effective technologies for sensing, mobility, navigation, planning, integration and operator interaction within search and rescue robot systems. This knowledge representation must be flexible enough to adapt as the robot requirements evolve. As such, we have chosen to use an ontological approach to representing these requirements. This paper describes the Robot Ontology, how it fits in to the overall Urban Search and Rescue effort, how we will be proceeding in the future.
