    • Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) is an integrated multi-agency response which is beyond the capability of normal rescue arrangements, and involves the location, rescue and initial medical stabilisation of victims trapped in confined spaces following a structural collapse. New Zealand has in place a heavy rescue USAR capability that meets international standards, with specific arrangements for responding to a range of emergency events including earthquake...

    • Urban Search And Rescue (USAR) is a time critical task. Rescue teams have to explore a large terrain within a short amount of time in order to locate survivors after a disaster. One goal in Rescue Robotics is to have a team of heterogeneous robots that explore autonomously, or partially guided by an incident commander, the disaster area...

    • Urban search and rescue is a difficult domain for autonomous mobile robots to operate in. The environment can be expected to be highly unstructured, with many obstacles and hazards for a robot to deal with...

    • Urban Search And Rescue is a growing area of robotic research. The RoboCup Federation has recognized this, and has created the new Virtual Robots competition to complement its existing physical robot and agent competitions. In order to successfully compete in this competition, teams need to field multi-robot solutions that cooperatively explore and map an environment while searching for victims...
