The DDS rescue drone is designed to be an efficient way to help those in need during a disaster without having to send in more humans and put them in danger.

The DDS -- which stands for Disaster Dispatch Search -- is an efficient drone unit that features legs for walking up stairs or climbing over rough terrain. If possible, the drone will lift its legs and travel on the embedded wheel that enables it to drive around in a safe, effective way.

The DDS is the design work of Ryohei Ikebe and identifies how we might create a robot that will aid emergency workers to help prevent further human injuries or casualties. With natural disasters and other emergency situations on the rise, it could help immensely if brought to life.
