A swarm of Kangaroo Robots for Emergency Responses

A swarm of mobile robots can be applied in many applications including exploration and mapping, surveillance and reconnaissance, patrol and monitoring, victim identification in hazardous environments. More advantageous than a single robot, a robot swarm should be sent into human impassible areas for cooperative exploration and data gathering. Such emergency response services require a strategy allowing fast deployment and exploration of mobile robots.
This work presents a strategic method and technological solution to emergency response services by inspiration from the Kangaroo family. We describe a semi-autonomous system consisting of a Kangaroo “mother” robot carrying a number of “child” robots sitting on her “pouch”. Depending on situation, the mother allows the children to jump out exploration, data gathering, or call them back for data collection and displacement
