Urban Robot Demo

In this demo, two robots are deployed from a Hummer in the woods. They cross a parking lot using a series of cars as cover, then hide at a car parking along the street waiting for operator's command. With commands from the operator, the robots cross the lanes on one side of the street, the median, and the other side, avoiding the patrolling cars and pedestrians. They then move toward the door at one end of the target building, with Robot1 stopping at the door and Robot2 passing down the hallway in the building, relaying the data it gathers to Robot1. Robot2 destroys itself after finishing its job, and Robot1 will then return to the Hummer.

READ THIS BEFORE YOU START:  You have to use the menu "Command -> Command Interface" and click the right arrow to start the robots from the beginning.

In this demo, two robots clear rooms on the third floor of MaRC (Manufacturing Research Center) building of Georgia Tech.
