On March 11, 2011, an earthquake occurred off the Pacific coast of Tohoku, Japan. The disaster area became a huge region, with limited rescue activity undertaken by robots. In order to discover disaster victims in a vast disaster area at an early stage, it is necessary to deploy large numbers of robots into the disaster site, and carry out investigation activities simultaneously and frequently. Although the traditional rescue robot is comparatively highly efficient, it is considered expensive and unfit for large-scale deployment. In this research, a bio-mimetic rescue robot, which can be mass produced in low cost and be multi control in wide area, is proposed.
