Abstract: In the Hanshin and Chu-etsu earthquake, many victims were crushed by rubble and died by “crush syndrome”. Even the simple rescue method that remove the rubble, it could be a cause of death. As the only countermeasure, DMAT (=Disaster Medical Assistance Team) creeps into fallen houses, and treat dialysis or drip “crush injury cocktail”. But these methods are very dangerous for victims and DMAT to treat amid the aftershocks. We think that Rescue Robot technique is just suitable solution for the dilemma under various and dangerous situations. The Rescue Robot has the dual tiered crawler. The Rescue Robot goes through under rubble open, and the victims are held in the container inside of the Robot body. We already built a prototype model, so we present an outline of our rescue robot. And we will show the research of the Blade mechanism to open rubble, and the mechanism of prevent Crush Syndrome that will be mounted on 1/1 size prototype model in the future.
