Augmenting Spot for Search and Rescue
I designed an attachment for the Boston Dynamics robot dog, Spot, focusing on search and rescue. Spot can navigate extreme terrain, but has limitations and drones usually don't have a long-lasting battery. I gave Spot a pad for the drone to land on and charge. Also, there are claws to secure the drone. Once Spot can’t go any farther, the drone is deployed. The drone has four cameras creating a 360-degree view of the terrain. Once a person is located, a rescue team can be deployed.
