Basic Information:

  • Natural disasters such as the 2004 and 2009 tsunamis as well as the most recent earthquakes on the island of Haiti and in Chile motivates engineers to use modern technology to help save lives. The survival of human victims is strongly related to the amount of time required to respond to the victims; therefore, emergency responders need accurate, timely information about the scene. The theme of the SoutheastCon 2011 hardware competition is how autonomous robots can respond to natural disasters. Autonomous emergency response robots can safely evaluate the situation and relay vital information to emergency response teams.
