Roboticists Without Borders in Japan

Posted 20 Apr 2011 at 16:18 UTC by John_RobotsPodcast Share This

Two days ago, on April 18th, Dr. Robin Murphy, Director of the Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue (CRASAR), reported that she had arrived back in Japan, as part of a team of five people and four different suitcase-sized, remotely operated marine robots, deployed as part of Roboticists Without Borders, and operating in Japan under the auspices of the International Rescue System Institute (IRS). Yesterday she continued by describing the use of two robots in conjunction, a Seamor to approximately locate objects of interest, and a SeaBotix SARbot to more precisely locate the object. Dr. Murphy's posts have been picked up by Robotland and by the website of the the IEEE Robotics & automation Society (RAS). RAS also states a forum titled Preliminary Report on the Disaster and Robotics in Japan is planned for ICRA 2011, to take place in Shanghai, China.
