Rescue Robots & Autonomous Vehicles

A rescue robot is a robot designed to aid in the search and rescue of humans. In an emergency situation, robots can assist first responders in search and rescue operations. They can explore an area, reach dangerous locations inaccessible to Humans, create a spatial map of that area, take measurements at crucial locations and overall help first responders find victims under the rubble. They also offer utilities like extending network coverage, transporting items, providing lighting and lifting objects, if they are equipped with a robot arm.
