Spider-like Robot for Disaster Search

Disaster rescue robot unveiled by Osaka Univ

OSAKA — Researchers at Osaka University unveiled on Monday a six-limbed robot that can be used for disaster rescue as it walks on unleveled ground and moves by hanging from net-shaped wires.

The robot, developed by Osaka University professor Tatsuo Arai and his colleagues, is 52 centimeters long and has six limbs with four junctures each. Named Asterisk, the robot carries a video camera and can be operated by remote control through video images it sends through wireless local area networks. (Kyodo News)
