While scientists and engineers are motivated to understand the challenges imposed by real world applications, governmental entities are interested to evaluate the readiness and use-fulness of robotic devices for future applications, especially in hazardous environments. Thus we initiate the event ARCHE that allows demonstrating capabilities of research demonstra-tors and new technologies in a simulated disaster environment. The demonstrations will be based on scenarios of rescue and ordonance disposal units (LVb G/Rttg/ABC) and will in-clude applications such as mapping, firefighting, obstacle removal, localization of hazardous materials or recovery of casualties.
