RoboCupJunior Rescue is an educational initiative focused on elementary, middle and high school students, as well as university students to work with a robot that must overcome various obstacles in an autonomous way to carry out rescue activities.
The scenario is based on an area that is too dangerous for humans to rescue the victims of a natural disaster; so the most difficult task has been given to a robot. He must be able to carry out the rescue mission in a totally autonomous manner without human intervention. The robot must be strong and smart enough to navigate through dangerous terrain with hills, uneven terrain and debris without getting stuck.
There are three modalities:
Rescue Line (Line Rescue): When the robot finally finds the victims, they have to transport them very carefully to the evacuation point so that humans can take care of them.
Rescue Maze (Rescue in Labyrinth): When the robot finally finds the victims, he has to provide them with an aid team and a locator, so that humans can take charge and finish the job.
Rescue Simulation (formerly CoSpace) is the competition of RoboCupJunior in which programming must be done through the CoSpace Robot Rescue platform that can be downloaded free of charge from the site http://www.cospacerobot.org/; to perform a collaborative activity between a robot that works in a virtual environment and a real robot.
The platform generates a scenario in which it distributes victims (simulated with objects of different sizes and colors); When they are found, they should be notified of their detection, collected and taken to a safe area.
RCJ Rescue teams must settle for at least 2 members and up to a maximum of 4.
The age is considered on July 1 of each year for the RoboCup World Cup, and therefore also for the Mexican Robotics Tournament.
Each contestant can only be enrolled in 1 unique team, sub-league and league in all RoboCupJunior.
The rules for the competition of RoboCupJunior Rescue are published on the international site of RoboCupJunior. Rescue Line and Rescue Maze already have 2018 rules.
These rules can be consulted in http://rcj.robocup.org/rescue.html. Take into account that the international committees are in the process of reviewing the rules, so it is advisable that you check periodically to find out if there were any updates.
