hereby a call for participation in the Virtual Robot competition in the
RoboCup Rescue Simulation League. The Virtual Robot competion will be
part of the RoboCup 2009, June 29 - July 5 in Graz, Austria
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,
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
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 equipment .
