SHERPA - Smart Collaboration between Humans and Ground-Aerial Robots for improving Rescuing Activities in Alpine Environments

Speaker: Nico Huebel

Time: Jul 12, 10:00am – 11:00am.

Location: Room 407, Administration building

Abstract:

This talk will give an overview of the SHERPA project. The SHERPA project aims for having a fleet of heterogeneous robots supporting a human rescue team in alpine environments. I will introduce the the benchmark scenarios for summer and winter rescue and discuss the problems that rescue teams face. Then the various involved robotic platforms together their capabilities and how they can complement each other are introduced. This will lead to a discussion of the collaborative aspects and the required reasoning capabilities of the overall system. Finally, I will show the latest results of the project.
