When a natural disaster strikes, it’s engineer Robin Murphy to the rescue. Or rather, it’s Robin and her army of robots. As the director of Texas A&M’s Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue, she’s one of the leading pioneers in using robots to help communities during search and rescue operations. Every year, over one million lives are claimed by natural disasters. Countless others are displaced, and communities take decades to fully recover. With her robots, Robin is helping these communities get back on their feet.
