The DDT Project has created a wide range of solutions for disaster response using robotics and related technologies (RTs) ranging from practical equipment to basic component technologies. This chapter summarizes the results obtained by this project. Problems faced by RTs for disaster response are analyzed by investigation of commercially available RT systems and those under research, including systems developed under the DDT Project. Common open problems are discussed on the basis of this investigation. This chapter also presents the RT roadmap developed by the Working Group on Special Environment RTs of the Future RT Map Committee of the MSTC.
