Virtual Robots is a competition that is part of the Robocup Rescue Simulation league. The goal of the competition is to foster research in cooperative multi-robot systems engaged in Urban Search And Rescue missions. This simulation environment provides the computational infrastructure. In a competition run, a team of simulated robots has to explore, map and clear a block-sized disaster area, featuring both carefully modeled indoor and outdoor environments. Robots and sensors used in the competition closely mirror platform and devices currently used in physical robots.

Currently addressed research topics include, but are not limited to, human-robot interfaces, sliding autonomy, sensor fusion, map building, and distributed planning and learning.
