Autonomous Exploration for Search and Rescue Robots

This paper describes how search and rescue scenarios offer a wide variety of tasks where the experimentation of mobile robots is possible. Specifically, the paper describes some of the issues arising from scenarios where full autonomy of the robot is required. After briefly describing the robot configuration and basic functionalities, the paper addresses the exploration problem for a rescue robot and presents a fully autonomous strategy for this task. The paper also explains algorithms and methods used for this process and presents typical experimental results.
