Search and rescue mission with dogs – video abstract

Swarmix, a joint project of ETH Zurich, EPFL, SUPSI/IDSIA and ELTE University, investigates cooperation and interactions in bio-synthetic swarms. The research work in the SWARMIX project is guided by the creation of a specific validation scenario composed of humans, dogs, and small-sized UAVs aimed at performing search-and-rescue (SAR) missions in outdoor civilian domains. The choice for search-and-rescue missions is inspired by their practical/humanitarian relevance, and by the fact that these applications are often used in the scientific domain as reference test to assess the performance of collective cooperative systems.
