hereby a call for participation in the Virtual Robot competition in
the RoboCup Rescue Simulation League.
What is the Virtual Robot competition?
The Virtual Robot competition is an initiative to stimulate research
in robotics that allow autonomously exploration of devastated
areas, providing high quality maps and demonstrating the capability
to actively search and localize victims using robot models
and control algorithms consistent with the state of the art.
Who can participate?
Everybody with experience in controlling an autonomous robot can
participate. The Virtual Robot competition has a sophisticated
simulation environment (http://sourceforge.net/projects/usarsim/),
including a wide variety of robot and sensor models. The interaction
of the robot and sensors are simulated in this environment in a
physical realistic way. The communication to and from the robot and
sensors is performed via a socket-interface, so existing control
software should be easily ported to the simulation environment. The
Virtual Robot competition allows to experiment with your control
algorithms and hardware configurations without the need to buy this
