The RoboCup 2005 US Open

  robotsThe CMU/PITT search and rescue team won both the Advanced Mobility and Advanced Autonomy classes at the Robocup US Open and, despite a rough beginning, took 3rd place overall in the RoboRescue division. We were the only team to enter robots in every round of the competition. Although the team qualified for the RoboCup international championships in Osaka, the research group will, instead, field a team for the Virtual Robot Robocup Rescue "demonstration league," a candidate league based on the USARsim simulation developed by Jijun Wang, a Ph.D. student from SIS. This year's competition will also include teams from Germany, Italy, and Japan.
