DRC Explorer (U19/U14), “FIRA Youth Modular Robot Disaster Relief Challenge”

 

The main focus of the FIRA Youth DRC Explorer competition is on developing autonomous robots to be able to pass from the ruins, find the packages and bring them to the trapped people in the building.

Introduction

An earthquake has happened and people have been trapped in a building. There are some wounded among these people who need immediate help. Also, there are some that have not been physically harmed and they just need food to be alive. Their location and physical condition are detected, but it is not possible to send the human rescue team for helping them. There is a room in this building as pharmacy and there are some aid packages and food packages in that place. A robot is required to be able to pass from the ruins, find the packages and bring them to the trapped people in the building.

Welcome to the Federation of International Robot-Sport Association

Robot soccer can be portrayed as a competition of advanced robot technology within a confined space. It offers a challenging arena to the young generation and researchers working with autonomous mobile robotic systems. It is hoped that FIRA’s flagship event, called the FIRA Robot World Cup (or the FIRA Cup in short), which started in 1996, together with many other FIRA events, will help generate interests in robotics in the young minds.

Through these events, FIRA hopes to help them better understand and appreciate, with interests, the scientific concepts and technological developments involved. FIRA believes that some of these interests will fuel scientific and engineering skills that ultimately develop into research outcomes to serve mankind in a variety of ways.

Ever since its establishment, FIRA has had venues for its annual FIRA Cup in Australia, Brazil, China, France and Korea. Making progress over successive years since 1996, FIRA Cup has now attained world recognition as a robot festival.
