Other members and friends probably have much to contribute when it comes to emergency management and disaster response. Robots were with first responders to the site of the BP drilling disaster. This is often the case, with many examples ranging from the robotic SAR work of Dr. Robin Murphy at the World Trade Center to Canada’s space arm which helps with repairs on the International Space Station.
What can engineers in our cutting edge robotics field do to help solve this or the next deep water disaster?
