The land is simply too dangerous for humans to reach the victim! Your team has been given the most difficult tasks. It must be able to carry out the rescue mission in fully autonomous mode with no human assistance. The robot must be strong and smart enough to navigate through a treacherous terrain with hills, uneven lands and rubble without getting stuck. The robot needs to seek out the victims, dispense rescue kit, and signal the position to the rescuers so the humans can take over. Time and technical skills are essential!
This competition qualifies the Portuguese teams for the RoboCupJunior Rescue - Line competition in RoboCup2019 to be held in Sydney , from July 2 to 8, 2019.
