In this episode, we talk about how Peter is using ROS to create rescue robots that win robotics contests.

He will explain what are the current limitiations of rescue robots and why they need a human pilot to drive them. He will also explain how they are doing the pilot interface using ROS. Additionally he will explain how his team are connecting the hardware with ROS by means of ROS Serial.

Many more details included about several rescue robotics competitions around the world.

Selected quote from the interview:

90% of the operation in a rescue robot is teleoperated. At present, it is very difficult for a cognitive system to decide whether to go to the right or to the left, in a collapsed building.
