Technology challenges of mobility and search ability of the fine-diameter cord-like robots for disaster response are raised and open for further research and development in TRC Program. A Leading Active Mechanism, consisting of a crawler-driven Active Segment and a Multimodal Search Sensor Unit, has been developed and added to the robot platform for solution to the technology challenges and enlargement of the robot capabilities as well. Early results of further development and evaluation of operational assistance interface of the robot are depicted in this report.
