Dear RoboCupRescue Robot League (RRL) Team Leaders and Team Members,
This is a gentle reminder to provide a) your general feedback to the RRL and b) proposals for new tests for rule advancement via the two online forms not later than
November 10, 2022.
All feedback received by this deadline will be considered by the RRL Committee in the meeting on Nov 14. Of course, new ideas are welcome anytime, but will likely be considered only later.

Updated Due Date November 10, 2022
The Committee will be meeting on November 14 to review the input from the teams.
Of course, even if your team misses this deadline, you can propose new ideas at any time.
The RoboCupRescue Robot League invites you to contribute to the advancement of rules by proposing new tests for future years! We fully realize that the current roster of tests may not cater to all relevant research goals of your team, so if you feel that your research interest isn't yet well represented, now is your chance to change that!
Please provide general feedback to the RRL from the perspective of your team via the online form https://forms.gle/9ENRVbocWhEVxNuV6 
Please use the online form  https://forms.gle/8NMmvc4RfbGcHzpo8  to tell us what kind of rule advancement by new tests you think should be incorporated and if you have the resources to take the lead on developing the corresponding rules, procedures, and apparatuses. No prior experience in test designing is needed - as long as you have expertise in the capability that is being tested, we'll help you through the process!
You're also welcome to take one or more of the following ideas that have been proposed in the past and, in some cases have had some development but need further work to bring forward. Feel free to propose based on one of these if they interest you!
- Robot behavior in poor wireless communication environments (e.g. a test method involving performing a task while communication is filtered through apparatus that degrades the channel). Note that the apparatus should be cheap and easy enough for all teams to reasonably replicate.
- Tests more relevant to pushing (semi-)autonomous mobility and navigation in moderately complex terrain. The pallet terrain is just a start!
- Tests more relevant to pushing (semi-)autonomous manipulator dexterity - getting the manipulator close without hitting things for instance.
- Ways of incorporating more formal human factors and usability metrics into scoring.
- Ways of incorporating more mission integration and logistical readiness factors into scoring
Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns via email.
Please forward to anyone who may have an interest in development test methods.
