DESIGN OF A ROBOT TEAM FOR SEARCH IN CENTRAL EUROPEAN FORESTS

Santi Esteva, Antoni Martorano, Albert Figueras

Abstract

Security incidents are a new topic for the autonomous robot task. Robots, sensors and intelligence make a great combination to achieve specific goals in this area. This paper proposes a methodology to design the size and the exploration form for a group of robots in the typical Central European forest. The objective is to find victims hidden into the fallen leaves. A statistics of the trouble situations is the starting point to design the team to displace at the objective. The robots are autonomous but is necessary one human supervisor to solve some critical situations. The results show the partition and the area covered by a simple group of equal robots.
