Cockroaches that can help rescue people, or so the heads of the research team at the University of North Carolina in the United States say, who are working on a project to implant a microchip in these insects as a backpack that would contain a wireless transmitter and receiver and a microcontroller connected to the abdomen and the cockroach’s own antennas.
Through these components, it would be possible to remotely control a cockroach by stimulating its sensory organs, making it believe that a danger is approaching so that it can move in a certain direction. In addition, the possibility of these beings helping to create maps of areas affected by landslides is also being studied to better manage rescue tasks.
