A fifteen-centimeter-tall robot scout, Schempf's Mini-Dora is intended to help police check out potentially dangerous situations. Unloaded from the back of a squad car, it could investigate buildings without risking the lives of police, as Schempf demonstrates by driving it up the front steps of an abandoned factory in a crumbling industrial section of Pittsburgh, PA. From the book Robo sapiens: Evolution of a New Species, page 145.
