RoboCupRescue - Robot League Email List Server and Archive

(Hosted by Georgia Tech University)

The goal of annual RoboCupRescue Robot League competitions is to increase awareness of the challenges involved in urban search and rescue (US&R) applications, provide objective evaluation of robotic implementations in representative environments, and promote collaboration between researchers.

The intent of this email list is to help teams quicken the pace of advancement in US&R robotics by:
1) providing practical help in overcoming technical problems that arise,
2) promoting and leveraging successful approaches and implementations,
3) encouraging collaboration with other teams demonstrating complimentary technical capabilities in mobility, sensory perception, planning, mapping, and practical operator interfaces.

The ultimate goal, of course, is to develop complete and effective robotic systems that can be deployed in the field to save lives. Hopefully, this email list will help get us there faster, and make it easier for teams to contribute along the way.
