A rescue robot supports rescuers in an emergency situation with dangerous or difficult tasks. Such robots must be able to withstand heat, overcome debris or stairs, detect injured persons, transport hazardous materials, and create situation pictures of unknown environments. The junior game field deals with some of these tasks.
On this playing field, the robot’s tasks are to assist and extinguish a fire in a factory, to transport hazardous chemicals, and to provide the rescue services with information about the position of people in the factory. At the same time, the robot has to overcome unknown terrain on its way to the factory.
