Paper Abstract

We conducted a web-based survey to establish law enforcement robotics needs for applications that extend beyond explosive ordnance disposal. The survey addressed scenarios and tasks where a robot would be used if available, and the tools, features and parameters deemed most important to carry out those tasks. We present in this paper the results of the survey and summarize current robotics research and development efforts by various segments of the Department of Defense that could potentially help meet those law enforcement needs. We also provide a recommended course of action to the Department of Justice for the development of these robotics capabilities.
