In this new era where robotics plays important role in performing dangerous task previously performed by human such as disabling bomb, handling hazardous material and even helping in search and rescue mission. Collapsed buildings are the most unstable place to perform search and rescue mission by human where the weight and size limits the rescuer movements. Sudden movement will cause further damage to the victims who trapped in the rubble and also to the rescuer. Robot with conventional locomotion seems to be not suitable to navigate on uneven and unstable terrain. In this final year project, a search and rescue robot with non-conventional locomotion will be develop which it is use to help first responder (Fire Fighters, Police, Medical) in a search and rescue mission on uneven and unstable terrain to determine the location of the victims in confined places such as collapse buildings without causing further damage to the victims and the rescuer. The robot that will be developed is a non-conventional locomotion robot where it have three arms that enable it to move by dragging itself to move forward, backward, left and right. It should able to move on unstable and difficult terrain and also able to climb stairs. Extra features such as camera, microphone, speakers and other features will be added throughout the project. Robots will be a valuable asset in the near future for search and rescue teams from around the world. This project is based on robot that have been developed named TerminatorBot by Associate Professor Richard M. Voyles from University of Denver.
