A Real-Time Rescue System: Towards Practical Implementation of Robotic Sensor Network
A real-time monitor and rescue system must be able to both quickly and reliably detect the event happening in its monitoring region. Furthermore, it is required to fulfill certain rescue mission, e.g., navigate victims to exit through safe path in case of emergency. Current monitor and rescue approaches generally rely on either teleoperated robots, or teams of wireless robots. Typically the robots used in these systems tend to have high cost which make them unpractical in large scale deployment and applications. In this paper, the authors present a real-time monitor and rescue system, TELOSW-BOT NET, utilizing integrated networks.
