The experimenters say that the small size of the rodents and excellent sense of smell makes them the perfect beast to help in similar disasters. Scientists who are training rats to save people from under the debris of a structure after an earthquake have participated an update about the design. These scientists from Eindhoven University of Technology are training the rats to detect a survivor in a simulated room, pull a switch on their vest to spark a beeper and also return to base where they’re awarded with a treat, according to a report in CNN. The design, concoction of Belgiannon-profit organisation APOPO, also involves the use of a pack. The pack will be equipped with a videotape camera, two- way microphone, and position transmitter to help first askers communicate with survivors, the CNN report further said. The experimenters say that the small size of the rodents, excellent sense of smell together with their audacious spirit makes them the perfect beast to help in similar disasters. ” Rats are generally relatively curious and like to explore– and that’s crucial for hunt and deliverance,” Donna Kean, a behavioural exploration scientist and leader of the design, is quoted as saying by CNN. The experimenters started working on the hunt and deliverance design in April … Continue reading “How Rats With pack Are Being Trained to Deliverance Earthquake Survivors”
