ABSTRACT

Statement of Requirements for Urban Search and Rescue Robot Performance Standards: Preliminary Version   [open pdf - 4MB]

"This report documents an initial set of requirements for the performance of robots that can support urban search and rescue (US&R) roles and tasks. These requirements were captured during three workshops held at NIST [National Institute of Standards and Technology] between November 2004 and February 2005, which included members from twenty FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Agency] Task Forces and the National Guard. This initial set of requirements will guide efforts to establish standard test methods for performance and use of US&R robots. As these efforts evolve, so will the set of working requirements. Updated versions of this report will be released periodically to document the process and publicize proposed test methods."
