Robocup Junior Rescue & Premier Rescue Competitions mirror the real life use of robots that rescue people from life threatening situations. In Junior Rescue, robots compete by following a line on a series of tiles encountering obstacles to a designated rescue area locating and rescuing the victim from the spill. Premier rescue involves the same tiles as Junior Rescue. However, this time the robots can encounter some extra more challenging tiles. Once in the chemical spill, the Premier Rescue robot is required to find and lift the victim to the safety of a raised platform.
RoboCup Junior is an initiative that sponsors regional, state and national robotics competitions for primary and secondary school children.
