We have been working to augment trained search and rescue canines with technological components to allow them to be monitored and controlled from greater distances in rubble caused by a disaster. Such rubble often precludes close interaction between a dog and its handler. In this paper we report the results of a set of trials involving augmented canines(More)
One of the goals of rescue robotics has been to allow machines to sense and act where people cannot go. Deployed with various sensors and under the guidance of trained operators these systems have shown great potential for finding victims in rubble. However, the current state of mobility of all deployed rescue robots is such that they can only be employed(More)
