Editorial Reviews


A thorough overview and intellectually stimulating treatment of foundational and advanced concepts by one of the pioneers in the field, this book is an authoritative reference for the library of every researcher and professional working in the area of disaster robotics.

(Bruno Siciliano, Professor of Robotics at University of Naples Federico II, Italy, and Past President of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society)

Robin Murphy's book is the one-stop resource for rescue robotics for three key reasons: it provides a well-thought-out taxonomy of rescue robots; it contains supporting data on where, when, and how robots were used; and it reflects on Murphy's experiences in using these robots in her vast deployment experience.

(Howie Choset, Professor, Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon)

This book is an excellent introduction to rescue robotics for both researchers and practitioners. Robin Murphy is the most well-known world leader in applying robots to disaster response. Her long-term research and experiences have given her deep insight into the humanitarian application of robots described in this book, particularly in human-robot interaction and fieldwork.

(Satoshi Tadokoro, International Research Institute of Disaster Sciences, Tohoku University)

As one of the top international researchers in search and rescue robotics and a true pioneer in multiple respects, Robin Murphy has focused her considerable expertise from field exercises into a concise manual that doubles as both an accessible tutorial and an authoritative reference. An excellent resource!

(Richard Voyles, Associate Dean for Research, Purdue College of Technology)

I would strongly recommend this book for anyone doing (or looking to do) disaster robotics or work in difficult environments. I would recommend this book for the last section even if the other sections were not in existence. I give this 5 out of 5 stars (I think this is my first review that I am giving 5 stars, it almost feels wrong).

(David Kohanbash Robots for Roboticists)
