Introduction to the Erebus platform

Erebus Rescue Simulator

Erebus is a robot simulation competition environment in which you must develop a controller for a robot to explore a maze, use sensing methods to find as many ‘victims’, and map the environment whilst avoid obstacles and traps.

It is built on Webots, a robotic simulation platform designed for a professional use and has been widely used in industry, education and research. Cyberbotics maintains Webots as its main product continuously since 1998. Here is a link to Webots official User Guide. On this site we present documentation as well as tutorials and guides for using the Erebus simulator.

The platform is primarily designed for the RoboCupJunior Rescue Simulation competition.
