Abstract

Due to the agile mobility of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), UAVs become potential robotic platforms for search and rescue applications. Since making a decision (e.g., identify victims or termination of a mission) in search and rescue missions is difficult, most of robotic search and rescue systems rely on teleoperation. This research proposes a novel telerobotic search system consisting of a monitor, joystick and eye tracker and drone with a RGBD camera. The experiments demonstrate that (1) human pilots can search for victims efficiently; and (2) the collected data is the rosbag format, which can be further used for analyzing humans' search behavior and gaze data.
