Thursday, 24 November 2022, Afidnes (Greece): The international consortium of the European- and Japanese-funded security project CURSOR will test innovative technological solutions to enhance the safety and effectiveness of Urban Search and  Rescue (USaR) Operations. CURSOR (Coordinated Use of miniaturised Robotic equipment and advanced Sensors for search and rescue OpeRations) integrates different components (drones, robots, geophones, information and communication technologies) to reduce the time for detection and rescue of trapped victims in collapsed buildings, whilst increasing the overall safety of Search and Rescue teams in the line of duty. It will be the last field test before the final demonstration of the CURSOR SaR kit in Wesel (Germany) in February 2023.
