About the Team

Team RESCUE is a group made up of two mechanical engineers (Matthew DeVries and Matt Johnson) and two electrical engineers (Paul Lyzenga and Karl Stough) who share a love for robotics and a desire to help victims of natural disasters and malicious attacks. To this end, they have decided to create a robot with the intent to help those who have been trapped in partially collapsed buildings as a result of natural disasters (earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.) or other causes (explosions, collapses, etc.).


The team has completed construction of the prototype and demonstrated its usefullness. For more information, see the prototype page for a summary of the project or the documentation page for project deliverables.
