The Kenaf rescue robot was developed for the purpose of conducting rescue operations at actual disaster sites. The distinctive features of Kenaf are the crawler enclosing its entire body and the four sub-crawler arms that are each controlled independently. These mechanisms and its low center of gravity enable Kenaf to exhibit outstanding travel performance over rubble.
