Rescue Robot

Also found in: Wikipedia.
A self-contained and powered robotic device that ambles over debris from natural (e.g., earthquakes) or manmade disasters (e.g., collapsed buildings) to help rescue workers. They are usually equipped with sensors for CO2 and body heat, and cameras for sending images to a home station
Pros Reduced personnel requirements, reduced fatigue, access to otherwise unreachable areas
