The RoboCupJunior Rescue New Simulation demonstration competition provides exciting new learning opportunities with a newly developed platform. The virtual robot is tasked with exploring and mapping a maze with different rooms and identifying victims on its way. The rule set for New 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 New Simulation 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 will take place in a similar format to the competition in October. To be selected for the demonstration competition, teams will directly register with the RCJ Rescue TC and submit a team description paper as well as a video of a run in the simulation environment. Furthermore, a SuperTeam competition will be held which includes working closely with another team to complete the challenge.
