Imagine this situation: There is a fire in a warehouse creeping toward explosive material.
But instead of the fire department sending in firefighters, a robot saves the day by moving the material to a safe location.
A robotics team at Carnegie Mellon University is working to create that robot.
The team says the robot looks like a monkey and is named CHIMP (CMU Highly Intelligent Mobile Platform).
The machine is being built to work in human situations with tools normal responders would work with.
