Competing in the RoboCup Rescue Robot League

By Michael J. Tandy, Stefan Winkvist and Ken Young


RoboCup Rescue is an international competition in which robots compete to find disaster victims in a simulated earthquake environment. It features both a Rescue Simulation League (RSL) which is entirely computer simulated, and a Rescue Robot League (RRL) with real robots and a test arena. This paper will describe the experience gained sending an undergraduate team to compete in the Rescue Robot League at the RoboCup German Open in 2008 and 2009. The design of the test arena and the rules of the competition will be outlined; as will the approaches taken by different teams; and the competition results
