Abstract
In May 2012, two major earthquakes occurred in the Emilia-Romagna region, Northern Italy, followed by further aftershocks and earthquakes in June 2012. This sequence of earthquakes and shocks caused multiple casualties, and widespread damage to numerous historical buildings in the region. The Italian National Fire Corps deployed disaster response and recovery of people and buildings. In June 2012, they requested the aid of the EU-funded project NIFTi, to assess damage to historical buildings, and cultural artifacts located therein. To this end, NIFTi deployed a team of humans and robots (UGV, UAV) in the red-area of Mirandola, Emilia-Romagna, from Tuesday July 24 until Friday July 27, 2012. The team worked closely together with the members of the Italian National Fire Corps involved in the red area. This paper describes the deployment, and experience.
