Abstract

The Kumamoto Earthquake occurred in April 2016. We conducted an investigation using the active scope camera to examine the interiors of the collapsed houses. The robot video scope can move by itself to probe narrow gaps. We could safely gather information by inserting it inside houses. We further considered the future possible improvements to the robot based on the investigation. We also determined the constraints to be considered for the robot operation in disaster areas. In addition, we created a test field imitating the features of collapsed houses. We used this field to evaluate our robot mobility and related technologies that are being developed for future applications.
