Enhancing Autonomous Access Hole Detection

Authors: Waismark, Ben, Alexander Ferworn, and Jimmy Tran

Abstract:

When buildings collapse, the resulting rubble may trap live victims underneath it, entombing them. Voids beneath the rubble may allow victims to stay alive. However, chances of survival dramatically decrease following the initial 24 hours after a disaster occurs. Hence, first responders must act quickly to rescue live victims. The work presented showcases enhancements to an autonomous access hole detection system, considerably increasing its accuracy.
