Rescue robotics for homeland security Academic Article uri icon


  • The improvement in human-robot interaction and information gathering in the U.S is discussed. The urban research and rescue (USAR) mission is involved in making the human-robot interaction less complicated. The robot exists to provide information to rescue workers and to interact with the victims. The research shows that it takes two people to operate one robot. Good human-robot interaction is critical to the acceptance and success of rescue robot systems.
