 //"​Field robotics is the use of sturdy robots in unstructured environments. One important example of such a scenario is in Search And Rescue (SAR) operations to seek out victims of catastrophic events in urban environments. While advances in this domain have the potential to save human lives, many challenging problems still hinder the deployment of SAR robots in real situations. This project tackles one such crucial issue: effective real time mapping. To address this problem, we adopt a multidisciplinary approach by drawing on both Robotics and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) techniques and methodologies."//​ //"​Field robotics is the use of sturdy robots in unstructured environments.

 +In our last competition,​ we used both RAPOSA-NG ​and a Quadcopter as robots.

 +==== RAPOSA-NG ====
  
 Following the success of [[http://​raposa.idmind.pt/?​l=en|RAPOSA]],​ IdMind developed a commercial version, improving it in various ways. Notably, the rigid chassis of RAPOSA, which eventually ends up being plastically deformed by frequent shocks, was replaced by semi-flexible structure, capable of absorbing non-elastical shocks, while significantly lighter than the original RAPOSA. Following the success of [[http://​raposa.idmind.pt/?​l=en|RAPOSA]],​ IdMind developed a commercial version, improving it in various ways.
