Six-Legged Rescue Robot

Engineers at Osaka University's Arai Lab have built a six-limbed robot that can be used for search and rescue walking on unleveled ground and hanging from net-shaped wires.

The robot, named Asterisk, can operate autnomously or can be remote controlled via a wireless connection sneding video back to the operator. The robot is on display at the 2005 World Exposition in Aichi Prefecture.
