An overview of the RoboCupRescue Robot League arenas, teams, and robots.
The RoboCupRescue Robot League arenas in Osaka, Japan. After the competition, elements of these arenas were distributed among robotics laboratories in Sendai, Yokohama, and Kawasaki, Japan.
Recently developed random step fields were used within the arenas to provide well-defined mobility challenges. And as always, simulated victims emitting various signs of life (human form, heat, sound, motion, and/or CO2) provided the incentive for robots to search the arenas in their entirety.
The top three Place Awards went to capable mobility platforms deploying state-of-the-art sensors for mapping along with effective operator interfaces.
The Best-In-Class Award winners.
The Innovation Award winners.
Other interesting robots showed the variety of approaches being considered for urban search and rescue application.
