Abstract

We developed rescue robots and tools that are driven by hydraulic actuators. They are small-sized, have simple mechanisms, and are suitable for heavy-duty rescue operations. This report shows the results of field tests carried out to verify the possibility of the two rescue robots we developed; we named them the Jack Robot and the Cutter Robot. We classified disaster situations into three categories: collapsed house cases, collapsed building rubble cases, and traffic accidents. We used the two robots in test situations that simulated these three disaster scenarios. As part of the experimental results, we found that there is a great potential for the use of these high-powered small rescue robots in disaster areas.
