Abstract

This paper addresses the search and rescue scenario Casualty Evacuation (CasEvac) at the European Land Robot Trial (ELROB). A disaster response robot can be sent into areas to rescue victims where it is too dangerous for human rescue due to environmental issues like the danger of collapse or radioactivity. If injured persons are no longer able to move, the robot must be able to rescue them from the danger zone. This paper addresses this scenario and describes our system design, the manipulator tool and the innovative control mechanism for transporting victims. The experiment was tested at the competition and compared with other solutions from the participating teams and currently implemented developments.
