Standard Disaster Robotics Challenge of World Robot Summit (WRS) aims to test the ability of robots that can be used as disaster response robots. Robot Engineering Lab of the University of Aizu is developing a robotic system to address challenges in the WRS. The competition has five stages, and the teleoperation robotic system had to be developed to satisfy the requirements of each challenge. REL uses a disaster-response robot called Giraffe, which has the capability of traveling in hard terrain. Open Robot Technology Middleware uses to integrate all of the subsystems inside the robot. Each subsystem has different tasks that process video data, RGB depth data, Point Cloud Data, sensor data and, feedback data. The Robotic system includes 6 cameras and NDI Software Developer Kit used to transmit and view video streams remotely. The video stream from each camera can be viewed separately, and it gives wider control over the robot for the operator. The teleoperation robotic system was tested during a robot demonstration held in Fukushima Robot Test Field, and results were analyzed according to the WRS 2018 competition guidelines. The results were at an acceptable level.
