The focus of this subproject is four folds: i) data communication; ii) task scheduling; iii) human computer interface; and iv) hardware integration. In the first year (2011.8~2012.7), we propose a tethered docking communication system to which is advantageous three fold: i) ensure the communication bandwidth for feedback of video signals and output of control signals to the remote robot; ii) provide power to the robot and extend time of task execution without needing to replace batteries; and iii) act as a life-line to retrieve the robot and/or survivors. The docking system will detach when the tether is constraint and switch to wireless communication mode. Meanwhile, the docking system can reattach for power charge, etc. We design a vital sign prioritizing algorithm to ensure that the maximum number of victims are recovered with minimum search time in the search and rescue task. The workflow for GUI proposed to ensure to minimize the learning time of the monitoring and control system and maximize the efficiency of data representation without confusion of data interpretation. We propose integration of two multi-touch industrial com-puters along with multi-directional joysticks in a disaster environment robust compact suit-case for remote monitoring and semi-autonomous operation of the remote robot. In the second year (2012.8~2013.7), we design and implement a wireless mobile ad hoc network (MANET) based on 802.11g energy efficiency of transmission power control to achieve minimal power consumption of the wireless system. For rescue task scheduling, we integrate environmental indices with vital sign indices to ensure optimal search and rescue scheduling. For human computer interface, we propose a markerless augmented reality (AR) approach to display objects which are not perceivable by camera based images. Finally in the third year (2013.8~2014.7), we verify the hybrid communication scheme where tethered is used for global long-distance communication with wireless as local short-distance communications to cope with various environmental conditions. In addition, a quality of service (QoS) criteria based hopping scheme is introduced for network topology of the MANET. For rescue task management, we implement a full autonomous search and rescue task to validate the results of the previous two years. In addition, we optimize the human computer interface to make sure efficiency of manual operation is optimized. Finally, all technologies this project presents will be developed from a modular point of view to provide the rescue robot ability to extend the search and rescue task to multi-robot cooperation.
