#2773: FireFlock

In a fire, it’s often very difficult to get a crowd of people to act calmly and escape effectively (from either a building or an aircraft).

Today’s invention is to use some robot sheepdogs to herd the people into making an orderly departure.

These synthetic animals, acting as a coordinated team, would be equipped with jaws capable of growling and nipping at people who were slow or getting in the way or heading in the wrong direction.
