Firefighters team up with Mr. Roboto

A firefighter from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune practices controlling the Talon robot during a demonstration at the fire department training area aboard MCB Camp Lejeune July 30 and 31. Commanders can communicate with a response team through a public address system mounted on the robot, and four mounted cameras provide live feedback to the operator's laptop controller.
