The rescue services face numerous challenges when entering and exploring dangerous environments in low or no visibility conditions and often without meaningful auditory and visual feedback. In such situations, rescue-personnel may have to rely solely on their own immediate haptic feedback in order to make their way in and out of a burning building by running their hands along the wall as a means of navigation. Consequently, the development of technology and machinery (robot) to support exploration and aid navigation would provide a significant benefit to the search and rescue operation; enhancing the capabilities of the fire and rescue personal and increasing their ability to exit safely [1]. A brief review and analysis of the previous published literature on exploring environments in low or no visibility conditions where haptic feedback has been utilized is provided and the design of a new intelligent haptic rein is proposed.
