University of Warwick Mobile Robotics Team to Develop Rescue Robot

Matthew Dodds, an electronics engineer, is working with seven students of the University of Warwick Mobile Robotics team to build a perfect rescue robot for winning the first prize in the European RoboCup Rescue Championship.

The team is investigating to find out if navigation ability can be included in the rescue robot by means of the latest Xbox Kinect. They are working like the Warwick students who were the winners of the 2010 European RoboCup Rescue Championship.

Matthew expressed his pleasure in working with such a distinct team of experts, striving for a common goal. The robot developed for the last year’s championship could creep over arduous surfaces like impaired destructed buildings for saving lives. But the team has decided to include a robotic arm to deliver supplies to the surviving people.

The team faces a difficult challenge of raising funds for procuring new components for their robot and to cover travel expenses to participate in contests held in Turkey and Germany.
