Robin Murphy and Robot Professor Robin Murphy of the University of South Florida and a robot she developed for search and rescue operations. Her National Science Foundation-supported research (under grant EIA 02-24401) explores the use of teams of small robots to shore up collapsed buildings by strategically placing and inflating air bags, and then working together to automatically adjust the shoring as rubble shifts or is removed. To learn more about Murphy's work in this area, visit her home page. (Date of Image: February 18, 2003)
