Virtual Robots is a competition that is part of the Robocup Rescue Simulation league. The goal of the competition is to foster research in cooperative multi-robot systems engaged in Urban Search And Rescue missions. This simulation environment provides the computational infrastructure. In a competition run, a team of simulated robots has to explore, map and clear a block-sized disaster area, featuring both carefully modeled indoor and outdoor environments. Robots and sensors used in the competition closely mirror platform and devices currently used in physical robots.

Currently addressed research topics include but are not limited to human-robot interfaces, sliding autonomy, sensor fusion, map building, and distributed planning and learning.

Qualification material:

Please prepare a Team Description Paper describing the most innovative contributions or scientific results your team is intended to provide and a demo video showing the current state of your contribution. The TDP is limited to 8 pages and must be formatted according to the LNCS format .

The Team Description Paper is an overview of the methodologies you use or intend to use to control your robots inside the Virtual Robot Competition. If applicable, include a reference to your latest publications.

Please upload your TDP before February 11th.
