Rescue Robot to Cut Costs Involved in Earthquake Rescue Attempts

A group of engineering students in the UK have designed a robot powered by Microsoft’s Kinect to successfully carry out earthquake rescue operations.

The Warwick Mobile Robotics (WMR) team developed this robot at the University of Warwick. The purpose of this robot is to help cut the costs involved in earthquake rescue attempts.

The fundamental technology used by this rescue robot is lasers. The solution put forth by the Warwick Mobile Robotics team could prove to be a safe and cost-effective alternative when compared to the other traditional methods.

The rescue robot proves to be an efficient rescue device as it recreates an accurate digital model of the room, in which it is placed. The detailed output produced by the robot results in a successful rescue attempt. This robotic invention is an example of gaming technology being used for practical applications.
