-Emergency responders literally risk life and limb interacting with known hazards to protect the public and rescue potential victims. They typically wear only conventional personal protective equipment while manually dealing with a variety of extreme hazards for which remotely operated robots should be well suit-ed. Examples include searching for survivors in collapsed or compromised structures; disabling or dismantling improvised explosive devices; mitigating large scale industrial or transportation accidents involving chemicals or radiological sources. Responders want to “start remote and stay remote” when dealing with such hazards and need capable robotic systems that can be remotely operated from safe standoff distances while they per-form their life-saving roles.
