RoboCup Junior Rescue Presentation The RoboCup Junior Rescue and Premier Rescue Scenario Rules Tile Overview (Rescue and Premier) Nuts and Bolts
The Rescue Scenario A terrible earthquake has hit the city and caused a large chemical storage unit to rupture spilling thousands of litres of toxic chemicals in the centre of the city. There is a person trapped on a sinking water tank in the middle of the chemical spill. Rescue crews are having trouble entering the city with the amount of rubble around and rescue from the air has also been ruled out due to the noxious gases rising around the city.
The Rescue Scenario It has been decided that the best form of rescue is the deployment of an autonomous robot that can navigate to the scene and rescue the stranded person by getting the water tank out of the chemical spill. On the way the robot could encounter obstacles, bridges and short cut opportunities that will challenge the most intrepid programmer.
