The goal of the Workshop is to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas among researchers aiming at the design and implementation of simulation and robotic systems to support search and rescue operations after catastrophic events in urban environments, in particular in post-earthquake scenarios.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Integration of robotic agents in the simulator
- Rescue simulator extensions
- Test field and metric for rescue robotics
- Rescue robots design
- Evaluation methodology for rescue systems
- Autonomy in rescue robots
- Future development of competitions and standards
- Experiences with rescue projects
