Tensegrity sensor for disaster sites, which could be dropped from the sky (drone) to collect data for emergency response crews to examine crucial data such as gas leakage, images, and audios from survivors. Due to the risk, this deployable sensor is especially beneficial when it comes to unapproachable sites by humans. Multiple tensegrity modules stored in a basket under the drone with an automated deployment system are deployed on multiple sites nearby to the region of interest once the drone arrives at the location.
