If you have been shot and wounded in battle by a Robot wielding an automatic weapon, hopefully you joined the side of the conflict carrying rescue robots.
- Pic #1 Depicts an all-terrain, search-and-rescue humanoid robot simulates how a soldier or item up to 500 pounds can be lifted and carried, and how it can grasp fragile objects without damaging them at Fort Detrick, Md., Nov. 22, 2010. U.S. Army photo by Barb Ruppert.
- Pic #2 Illustrates T-52 Enryu showed off its avalanche prevention skills by removing accumulated snow from the edge of a cliff. The robot also demonstrated its ability to extract a car buried under a bank of snow. Remote control operation is being tested at avalanche sites, where extreme caution is required to prevent secondary avalanches. Tetsuya Kimura, an associate professor conducting rescue robot research at Nagaoka University of Technology, says, "In addition to performing avalanche-related work, we hope the robot will be useful in removing snow around the entrances to underground shopping arcades or tunnels."
- Pic #3 This bright green robot that you see is not a threat to the human race despite how you might perceive its actions at first glance. No, it's not swallowing up a human whole, but it actually uses those arms to identify and pick up any humans who might have passed out in the midst of suffocating fumes during a fire. This is pretty neat, since firefighters no longer need to risk their lives running into thick, black smoke. Hopefully no injury will occur by this toss-happy robot to an already unconscious victim. I suppose you can also use this robot to extract the injured in a battlefield. Does anyone know the name or maker of the third robot here?
