On June 28, 2021, the leaders and members of the Russian and Japanese teams of the international project " Information System of Emergency Situations Management in the areas of Floods and Landslides with Assistance of Distributed Heterogeneous Group of Robots" held an online working meeting as part of a series of periodic online meetings. The meeting was a technical addition to the recent meeting that took place on June 18, 2021. On June 28, the leaders discussed the possibilities of integrating a Japanese macro-flood simulator based on mathematical models and geodata with micro-simulators of route planning for ground robots and UAVs in search and rescue operations based on ROS.
Three countries are participating in the international project: Russia, Thailand and Japan. A Head of the Laboratory of intelligent robotic systems (LIRS) of the Institute of Information Technology and Intelligent Systems (ITIS) Professor Evgeni Magid is also a Head of the national Russian team, as well as the general director of the entire project. Professor Magid and an associate professor of the Intelligent Robotics Department Roman Lavrenov made reports on micro-simulators developed at the LIRS for UAVs and UGV. In turn, the Japanese team professors presented a macro-simulator they have been developing since the 1990s and their own new micro-simulator for UAVs.
