About this Video

Every time you hear about a new robot, drone, or other technology you’ll inevitably be told that “it could someday be used for first-responders”. The reality is that despite such hopes, technologies rarely get to broad deployment or to the on-the-ground first-responder that most needs help. Francisco Aguilar of Bounce Imaging describes how one Harvard Innovation Lab / MIT startup is trying to help first-responders at scale by understanding their needs first, and only then applying advanced technologies.
