When an emergency occurs within a building, it is safer to send autonomous mobile agents instead of human responders, to explore the area and identify hazards and victims. Existing exploration algorithms (Svennebring, J. and Koenig, S. (2004) Building terrain-covering Ant robots: a feasibility study. Auton. Robots, 16, 313–332, Ferranti, E., Trigoni, N. and Levene, M.
