One of the robots contributing to this effort is the Inuktun VGTV-Xtreme series by American Standard Robotics. This capable robot is one of the only robots engineered specifically for the search and rescue domain. This video shows a successful search of a damaged building during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. If you are interested in further information, lessons learned from these deployments and guidelines for future robot development is discussed in Volume 25, Issue 1-2 of the Journal of Field Robotics. http://robotics.cs.uml.edu Video credits: Florida Task Force 3 and edited by Mark Micire
