Mobile robots may be able to aid rescue crews in dangerous environments during search and rescue missions after natural or man-made disasters. In 2006, we began a research project to realize mobile robots that can gather information rapidly at the first stage of a disaster. 3D mapping, which can be an important aid for rescue crews in strategizing rescue(More)
Rapid information gathering during the initial stage of investigation is an important process in case of disasters. However this task could be very risky, or even impossible for human rescue crews, when the environment has contaminated by nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons. We developed the information gathering system using multiple mobile robots(More)
In this paper, we propose a tree search approach to generate and evaluate cooprative behavior online in multiagent systems. It was difficult to apply a tree search methodology to tasks that the state-action space is continuous and requires realtimeness. However, it has become possible to apply such an approach since the computational resources became more(More)
