Rules and Technical Specifications
The competition of Search and Rescue Junior is closely related with the RoboCup Junior Rescue (Rescue RCJ). The RoboCup Junior is a part of the RoboCup for young students under 19 years of age.

In this competition mobile robots are used to identify victims quickly and accurately in disaster scenarios that are recreated artificially. These scenarios will range in complexity from line-following on a flat surface through paths with obstacles, line breaks and slopes, to reach an area where the victims are randomly placed in open terrain.

This competition takes place in two distinct age groups: 8-14 years and 15-19 years and qualifies the Portuguese teams to participate in the world RoboCup Junior Rescue.
