  • The goal is to develop a system for the virtual teleportation (or virtual immersion) of rescuers to the

    subterranean areas of a coal mine that have been closed due to a catastrophic event within them.

    Nowadays, human rescuers inspect such areas. The activity of rescuers is extremely dangerous.

    Moreover, human rescuers are only allowed to enter a restricted area if the values of several critical parameters achieve acceptable levels, which often require long waiting times.
