Search and Rescue Challenge | Ottawa Robotics Competition

Search and Rescue Challenge

Unmanned robots are an important tool for search and rescue missions too dangerous for humans.

Many accidents can occur on mine sites worldwide, one of them being cave-ins. These can be very dangerous as a result of the conditions such as restricted escape options, the potential lack of oxygen and confined spaces.
In these cases, the mine rescue team needs to assess the situation quickly and carry out a site survey. Your challenge is to program an unmanned robot to search through a mine and to assist the leader of the mine rescue team to identify all the injured miners different and find an exit.
