US Navy building Android firefighter

In a new project that has just commenced, US Navy aims to build android firefighter robot. The concept of firefighter robots is actually not new however doing this task with a robot in human form involves more challenges. The ships are designed for only humans to move around, therefore a humanoid robot will perform much more efficiently in such environments. The project will last for three years and involves teams from Virginia Tech, Penn State and Naval research Laboratory. For original story, please visit here.
