Synergy in USAR Robotics

Hamid MirMohammad Sadeghi, Hamed Bastani
2007 2007 International Conference on Information and Emerging Technologies  
This paper presents an approach for design and implementation of cooperative rescue robots. The objective is to implement robots making search and rescue (SAR) action safe and easy.  ...  However the robots are quite different in appearance and capabilities, but they accomplish the SAR task with a close synergy.  ...  Urban search and rescue, USAR, is one of the similar situations which focuses on finding and rescuing people injured or trapped in a collapsed structure.  ...
