Bari-Bari-IV Rescues

Tokyo Institute of Technology's Kitagawa Tsukakoshi Laboratory developed the Bari-Bari-IV to aid in rescues while minimizing risk of hurting humans trapped in the wreckage. Built with 2 plates, it burrows into the site and jacks itself up slowly so that there is less disturbance while removing debris. The bot is also equipped with a camera and speaker to aid in its efforts.
