RCJ Rescue Simulation

In the RoboCup Asia-Pacific (RCAP) Rescue Simulation, teams have to develop and program appropriate strategies for both real and virtual autonomous robots to navigate through the real and virtual worlds to collect objects while competing with another team’s robot that is searching and collecting objects in the same real and virtual worlds.

In Virtual RCAP 2020, only virtual robot will be used.
