RoboWorm

In times of tragedy, the human capacity often faces many limitations, especially when it comes to search and rescue in tight situations. A design company from Germany seeks to solve this with the RoboWorm. It’s an earthworm-like robotic probe that could easily navigate through tight spaces such as building rubble, in order to search for survivors without further endangering more human lives. It is the eye and ear replacement of rescue workers, for safer, more effective rescue missions.

The RoboWorm is one of the winners of the 2014 reddot award.
