|Project Description||The project aims to develop the cognitive (i.e. attention) and control capabilities of CREW service robots for |
undertaking autonomous emergency and rescue tasks and to also develop fault-tolerance capabilities for
cooperating robots dealing with late and/or incomplete information.
CREW robots are service robots engaged in emergency work such as disasters, with high attention capabilities.
The disasters may be scenes of natural disasters (e.g. tsunami, earthquake, flood, snow avalanche, etc) and/or
human induced disasters (e.g. fire, terrorism attack, transport accidents, etc). These disasters are common in
Southeast Asia (SEA) and to a certain extent in Europe.
The application will be limited to search and rescue activities immediately following a disaster where the robot
will be part of the initial crew to arrive. A mobile robot with a drone (landing and charging base for the drone on-
board the mobile robot) will cooperate with each other and with humans to gather information about the
situation, look for survivors, and determine if there are any further hazards for the human team members (e.g.
gas leak, chemical leak, etc.).
