Abstract

To gather data in support of standards development for urban search and rescue robots, NIST is conducting a series of field tests to quantify the functionality and performance of various candidate robots. During these tests, manufacturers bring robots that may be appropriate for various urban search and resuce applications and emergency responders put the robots through NIST-derived tests designed to measure their performance in key areas. During a set of field tests at the Montgomery County Fire Academy in Maryland in August, 2006, members of the Electromagnetics Divison of NIST developed and carried out a uniform series of spectral analysis tests on each of the robots that participated in the event. We report here on results of this initial set of field tests of the wireless link.
