The primary problem for which the bot is designed is to make an autonomous gadget capable of handling issues of natural disaster by finding the trapped victims and making a clear and safe path for the rescue workers to reach ground zero. It can be implemented during earthquakes, building collapse and other land based disasters. Various components have been considered during Bot designing to make it autonomous and perform functions without human intervention. A rocker-bogie mechanism allows easy movement on rough terrain. Robotic arms with multiple DOF allows easy approach to difficult places for lifting and moving objects. A remote control system in case the autonomous system fails, 3 wide angle cameras for side viewing and a High definition camera for head vision as well as 360 degree view. Loader for removing debris near the lower chassis. New concept puncture proof tires implemented using additive manufacturing. Tubular space frame manufactured using square hollow tubes with implementation of DFMA principles. Fully equipped with sensors like LiDAR, RADAR, SONAR, Stereo Camera, IMU, GPS using a distinct software architecture which handles the task of perception, mapping, control and surveillance. All these together minimise the risk faced by rescue workers during rescue operations.
