Abstract

The 2009 RoboCup Competitions took place in Graz Austria in July of 2009. The Virtual Robot Rescue Competition included 11 competitors from 10 different countries. The main objective of this competition is to utilize teams of robots to perform an urban search and rescue (USAR) mission over both indoor and outdoor terrains. For the first time, elemental tests were performed in autonomously generated map quality, multi-vehicle tele-operation, and communication's system deployment. In addition, a comprehensive USAR scenario was performed. This year's competition featured new performance metrics and automatic scoring programs. This paper presents an overview of the metrics for the competitions and lessons learned from their application during a high-intensity international competition.
