The RoboCupJunior Rescue Simulation provides exciting new learning opportunities with a newly developed platform (Webots-Erebus). The virtual robot is tasked with exploring and mapping a maze with different rooms and identifying victims on its way. The rule set for RCJ Rescue Simulation is similar to RCJ Rescue Maze and extended by the addition of new areas with more difficult terrain. Additionally, some elements from RoboCup Rescue Major are incorporated.
The Webots-Erebus platform was selected for the Rescue Simulation demonstration competition in early June 2020 after it was tested with volunteer teams during workshops. The platform was refined further and in October 2020 a virtual demonstration competition took place.
During the 2021 International RoboCup event another demonstration competition took place in a similar format to the competition in October. The format of the 2022 competition (either another demonstration or regular competition) will be determined by the end of 2021.
