    ABSTRACT: Various reasons cause floods in cities, RoboCup Rescue simulation system has been designed so that various disasters can be plugged into the existing system. However, it is hard to handle water in RoboCup Rescue simulators. In this paper, we show flood simulation based on diffusion equation model is easily implemented using IDSS and IDSS's scalability is useful for flood simulations.

    ABSTRACT: One of the main requisites for multi agent researchers is a multi-purpose infrastructure that enables them to create, test and evaluate protocols, methods and algorithms. RoboCupRescue simulation environment is a flexible and configurable environment that can fill this gap. With changes in its configuration files, it will gain different features, so different methods can be designed, implemented, and tested. This environment is actually suitable for most multi-agent research issues such as cooperation, coordination, agent communication languages, and agent micro level issues. Sensible roles and tasks in the system motivate more research and make this environment a suitable infrastructure for educational purposes. Arian is a set of implemented agents for RoboCupRescue system. Using Arian agents will speed up implementing agents for this environment. In this paper, we introduce RoboCupRescue simulation environment and Arian agents along with some examples of research issues in this environment. We also present some of RoboCupRescue sub-problems for specific research goals. Although RoboCupRescue can be considered as an application of multi-agent research, in this paper we focus on the suitability of this environment as an infrastructure for multi-agent research and education.

    ABSTRACT: The Robot World Cup Initiative (RoboCup) is an international research and education initiative. It was started in order to foster artificial intelligence search. RoboCupRescue's domain is search and rescue operations in urban disasters. The RoboCup Rescue league consists of two projects: the simulation project and the robotics and infrastructure project. A multi-agent-based approach to disaster simulation provides many research themes and supports rescue operations in real situations. Simulation Project, not only agent implementation, but also the evaluation of the social agents' performance, the architecture of the distribution system, and the quality of communications, etc. The following features are important in this project to promote the research and provide verification methods.

    ABSTRACT: The RoboCup Rescue project aims to simulate large urban disasters and rescue agents' activities. The simulator must support both simulation of heterogeneous agents such as fire fighters, victims' behaviors and interface to disaster's environments in the real world. The RoboCup Rescue simulator is a comprehensive urban disaster simulator into which a new disasters simulator or rescue agents can be easily plugged. In the paper, the simulator's specification based on the Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and the simulator's architecture are described

    ABSTRACT: Disaster rescue is one of the most serious social issue which involves very large numbers of heterogeneous agents in the hostile environment. RoboCup-Rescue intends to promote research and development in this socially significant domain by creating a standard simulator and forum for researchers and practitioners. While the rescue domain intuitively appealing as large scale multi-agent domains, it has not yet given through analysis on its domain characteristics. In this paper, we present detailed analysis on the task domain and elucidate characteristics necessary for multi-agent systems for this domain
