Some of you may remember Robin Murphy from a recent interview she did with Talking Robots. She has drawn on her extensive experience with using robots in disaster sites like the World Trade Center or in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, to build the world’s first robot made specifically for disaster relief operation. The "Survivor Buddy" can crawl into small, hard-to-reach holes without visible light, to locate survivors or find easier routes for rescuers.
