Caption

Robot surveillance. Robot airship being tested before entry in a competition based around a simulated hazardous materials spillage. The robot blimp must negotiate the accident site without human control, avoiding obstacles such as flames in order to locate dummies posed as casualties. The robot must also inform emergency services how the casualties may be reached safely. Photographed at the International Aerial Robotics competition at the Hazardous Materials Management and Emergency Response (HAMMER) facility, Washington, USA, in 1998. HAMMER is owned by the Department of Energy. This robot was built by a team from Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada.
