Outline of qualifying Contest
In the contest venue, there is a one-sixth scaled experiment field simulating an urban area that has suffered an earthquake, where rescue dummies (called “Damiyan”) simulating victims are placed. Each team launches their robots from the robot base located at both sides of the field and has to rescue two Damiyans within the time limit (8 minutes).
In the qualifying contest, teams are allowed to sight the field directly, while in the final contest they have to control the robots remotely from the control room, relying only on the images from the on-board cameras.
The contest is evaluated based on the total score considering both the damage to the Damiyans and the level of achievement of Damiyan rescue. Damage is evaluated by sensors embedded in each Damiyan. The level of achievement of Damiyan rescue will be evaluated in three levels: “completion of rescue” (rescuing the Damiyan from the debris), “completion of transportation” (carrying the Damiyan back to the robot base), and “individual identification” (identification of the Damiyan).
