Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard (EMILY) is called into action by lifeguards and emergency response teams around the world for water rescues. With support from the National Science Foundation, roboticist Robin Murphy of Texas A&M University and her colleagues are developing some upgrades to make EMILY and other rescue robots "smarter" for large-scale water rescues, such as a capsized ferry or water taxi. Part of the "Science Nation" series.
