We report recent results from field experiments conducted with a team of ground and aerial robots engaged in the collaborative mapping of an earthquake-damaged building. The goal of the experimental exercise is the generation of three-dimensional maps that capture the layout of a multifloor environment. The experiments took place in the top three floors of a structurally compromised building at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan that was damaged during the 2011 Tohoku earthquake. We provide details of the approach to the collaborative mapping and report results from the experiments in the form of maps generated by the individual robots and as a team. We conclude by discussing observations from the experiments and future research topics. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
