ESCHER (Electric Series Compliant Humanoid for Emergency Response) is a full sized humanoid robot designed, fabricated, and assembled by students at Virginia Tech. ESCHER is being designed to support a variety of disaster response and search-and-rescue tasks that will allow robots to bear the burden of dangerous environments instead of humans. The robot performs many tasks autonomously while still allowing for human interaction in critical areas.
