snake-like robot to help in disasters

Postby deja vu on Mon Jun 12, 2017 2:14 pm

A research team says it has developed a snake-like robot that can climb over debris and rubble by shooting a jet of air to lift its front end from the ground. It is the
first snake-shaped robot in the world that can move with its front tip off the ground, according to the team, which includes members from Tohoku University in
Sendai. The Tohoku region was devastated by the March 11, 2011, Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami.

This will make a huge difference. It can be too dangerous for searchers and their dogs and with this new tool, it coud
save lives or rule out where not to search and focus on recovering the living.
