Coordinated Use of miniaturized Robotic equipment and advanced Sensors for search and rescue OpeRations

Project description

Life-detecting robot to the rescue

After an earthquake, landslide or flood, search and rescue teams scramble to help trapped survivors. Finding victims can be a tough job, even with the use of sniffer dogs, highly sensitive audio listening devices, and thermal imaging cameras. The EU-funded CURSOR project is developing mini robotic equipment and advanced sensors to assist in these operations. Specifically, their system comprises unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), 3D modelling, and transportation of disposable miniaturised robots that are equipped with advanced sensors for the detection of volatile chemical signatures emanating from human beings. Information and data collected are transferred in real time to a handheld device operated by first responders at the disaster site.
