Design of Wirelessly Controlled Motion Robot for Disaster Search and Rescue Management

Aishwarya Mahatme, S.B Pokle, Namrata Purohit, Summaiya Qureshi, Ronit Ranjan


This work intends to assist reach the victims tormented by both natural and manmade disasters like landslides, earthquakes, terrorism, fire explosion, etc. So this problem can be overcome by designing the RF motion robot which involves wireless cameras and sensors which can make it easy to observe the affected areas. This robot can quietly enter into the enemy area and sends us the proper information gathered by the information collected by the wireless camera and sensors.  The motion of this robot is wirelessly controlled by an RF transmitter device for sending commands to the RF receiver mounted on the moving bot. Since human life is often valuable, these robots are the substitution of soldiers in war areas and also the rescue team for disaster management [1]. This robot may be stationed in hotels, shopping malls, etc, where there can be a threat from intruders, terrorist or other disasters. At the time of war, it can collect information from the enemy terrain and monitor that information at a far secure area, and safely devise an idea for the counter-attack, tracking locations of terrorist organizations and plan an attack at a suitable time. Making surveillance of any disaster-affected area where personnel can’t go.
