Abstract

Rapid information gathering during the initial stage of investigation is an important process in case of disasters. However this task could be very risky, or even impossible for human rescue crews, when the environment has contaminated by nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons. We developed the information gathering system usingmultiple mobile robots teleoperated from the safe place, to be deployed in such situation. In this paper, we described functions of the system and report the field experiment conducted in a real underground mall to validate its usability, limitation, and requirements for future developments.
