TU Graz Field Robotics Team TEDUSAR

Research and development of robotics for use in challenging and unstructured areas, such as disaster areas or Inspection and Maintenance. The members of the robotics team are united by their fascination with robots – autonomous robots that are able to go about their tasks independently and without help from outside.

Team TEDUSAR (Technology and EDucation for Urban Search And Rescue robots) develops autonomous search and exploration robots to support emergency teams in disaster situations. In this environment they have to deal with several challenges: unstructured physical environments, automatic creation of maps, autonomous collection of information.

The team regularly takes part in international competitions. The team also takes part in exercises with emergency professionals such as the fire brigade, in order to test the use of robots in disaster situations.

Gemeinsam an eigenen Ideen und Zielen zu arbeiten und sich immer wieder neuen Herausforderungen zu stellen, ist das Spannende am TEDUSAR Team. Besonders inspirierend finde ich die Teilnahme an den verschiedenen Bewerben/Übungen, bei denen man die gefundenen Lösungen unter realitätsnahen Bedingungen auf die Probe stellen kann.


Developing autonomous robots for a Mars mission, one of the things TEDUSAR team members are doing.
