On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake (Magnitude 9.0) and accompanying tsunami hit the Tohoku region of eastern Japan. Since then, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plants have been facing a crisis because of loss of all power resulting in meltdown accidents. Three buildings housing nuclear reactors were seriously damaged from hydrogen explosions and,(More)
We report recent results from field experiments conducted with a team of ground and aerial robots engaged in the collaborative mapping of an earthquake-damaged building. The goal of the experimental exercise is the generation of three-dimensional maps that capture the layout of a multifloor environment. The experiments took place in the top three floors of(More)
In urban search and rescue situations, a 3D map obtained using a 3D range sensor mounted on a rescue robot is very useful in determining a rescue crew's strategy. Furthermore, thermal images captured by an infrared camera enable rescue workers to effectively locate victims. The objective of this study is to develop a 3D thermography mapping system using a(More)
